§ Mr. Michael McNair-Wilson
asked the Minister of Transport what action he proposes to take to prevent cattle straying from Epping Forest on to the North Circular Road between Wadham Bridge and the junction of Forest Road, Walthamstow and on to Woodford New Road between the Whipp's Cross roundabout and the junction of Forest Road.
§ Mr. Marsh
The trunk road between Wadham Bridge and Forest Road is now being diverted. Cattle will be prevented from entering the new route by means of cattle grids and fencing. Woodford New Road, between Whipp's Cross and Forest Road, is a metropolitan road for which the Greater London Council is the highway authority. I understand that the Council has no plans at present for preventing cattle straying from Epping Forest on to the road.
