HC Deb 11 March 1964 vol 691 cc57-8W
62. Mr. Gardner

asked the Minister of Transport whether he is aware of the urgent need to construct pedestrian tunnels under the railway bridge in Wickford High Street; and what action he will take to ensure the construction of these tunnels without further delay.

Mr. Marples

I have recently issued a grant for this scheme. The Essex County Council, which is the highway authority, is responsible for carrying out the work.
