HC Deb 03 March 1983 vol 38 cc218-9W
Mr. Greenway

asked the Secretary of State for Transport if, in view of the disturbance caused to residents of Ribchester avenue, Wyresdale crescent, and other roads bordering Western avenue by the current A40 and related roadworks, he will take further steps to speed the completion of these roadworks.

Mrs. Chalker

Bringing in extra men and machinery would not only increase the cost but through greater site activity would also worsen conditions for those living alongside the road. Night time, Sunday and bank holiday working is not possible because Ealing borough council has imposed a control of pollution order on the contractor.

If my hon. Friend has a particular problem in mind, I shall look into it.

I am pleased to say that the contractor hopes to complete the works ahead of schedule.
