§ Sir J. Rodgers
asked the Minister of Transport whether a date has yet been fixed to complete the new road from the Dartford Tunnel towards Croydon, in order to by-pass villages such as Otford and Shoreham.
§ Mr. Tom Fraser
I assume that the hon. Member has in mind the South Orbital Road and the Farnborough to Croydon Link Road.71W
The South Orbital Road from the Dartford Tunnel as far as the A.20 at Swanley should he completed by about 1971. Its continuation westwards in Kent, and the local authority scheme for a link road towards Croydon, are in the planning stage. It is too soon to say when they are likely to be built.
