HC Deb 11 May 1966 vol 728 c90W
86. Mr. Scott

asked the Minister of Transport why she has given approval for the eastern part of the proposed Western Avenue extension to be built with dual two-lane carriageways and not to the full motorway standard of dual three-lane carriageways.

Mr. Swingler

The eastern part is designed for a traffic capacity matching that of a dual two-lane Harrow Road Flyover and the Marylebone Road with which it connects, whereas duel three-lanes will be needed to accommodate additional traffic west of the connecting slip roads at Westbourne Terrace.
