HC Deb 03 April 1974 vol 871 c373W
Mr. Tebbit

asked the Secretary of State for the Environment to what extent and when he expects the proposed M16 to alleviate the problems caused by heavy through traffic in urban streets in Ching-ford.

Mr. Carmichael

Should the published proposals for the sections of the M16 between the A10 and A12 trunk roads go ahead as planned, it is expected that considerable relief to the problem of congestion caused by heavy traffic in Ching-ford will be achieved by 1980.
