HC Deb 25 March 1964 vol 692 c93W
77. Mr. Wade

asked the Minister of Transport what consideration is being given to providing new road and rail crossings over the Thames, east of London, in order to provide an adequate link between the north-east of Britain and the Channel Tunnel.

Mr. Galbraith

Our present plans should provide adequately for road traffic between the south-east and the north-east, including that generated by the Channel Tunnel.

I understand that the Railways Board is satisfied that it could provide adequate rail facilities to serve the Tunnel by the selective improvement of existing lines.
