HC Deb 19 June 1972 vol 839 cc20-1W
Mr. McCrindle

asked the Secretary of State for the Environment whether, in regard to the traffic flow on the A127/A12 trunk roads, he will consider abolishing the Fortune of War roundabout at Laindon, Essex, and introduce temporary flyovers at the junctions with Whalebone Lane, Dagenham, and Barley Lane, Ilford.

Mr. Speed

A junction with restricted access to the trunk road is planned to replace the Fortune of War roundabout, Laindon, as part of the scheme now in preparation to provide A127 in Essex with dual three-lane carriageways. Provision of temporary flyovers at the A12 junctions would not be justified because signal controls are to replace the roundabouts at Barley Lane later this year and at Whalebone Lane in 1973–74.
