HC Deb 07 June 1967 vol 747 c200W
53. Mr. Hamling

asked the Minister of Transport what representations have been made to her Department on the construction of motorways in London south of the Thames; and whether she will make a statement.

Mr. Swingler

Construction of the Blackwall Tunnel—Shooters Hill Road section of the East Cross Route will start this summer. The Greater London Council is in consultation with interested authorities on its proposals for the Dover Radial Route and two sections of the proposed new "C" Ring Road (Wandsworth—Streatham Vale and Falconwood—Woolwich/Erith), but these schemes have not yet been programmed. The "C" Ring Road will have an interchange near Streatham Vale with the M.23 motorway, programmed for construction in the early 1970's.
