HC Deb 16 November 1964 vol 702 cc21-2W
Mr. Iremonger

asked the Minister of Transport what new roads he is planning in Ilford and surrounding districts; when the proposed plans will be published in detail; and what opportunity will be given to local residents to object to them.

Mr. Tom Fraser

As I announced on 4th November, I am proposing that the Bishop's Stortford Motorway should be built down the Roding Valley at least as far as the North Circular Road. A draft scheme under Section 11 of the Highways Act, 1959, will be published as soon as my investigations and consultations are complete. There will then be three months during which objections can be made. The "C" Ring Road is planned to continue down the Roding Valley to A.13. The line is already shown in the County Development Plan and a Draft Order under Section 7 of the Highways Act, 1959, will be published in due course. It is also envisaged that a new east-west route will ultimately be needed to relieve A.12, and the local planning authority have been asked to propose an amendment to the development plan at the next opportunity. This will permit any objections to be made.
