§ Mr. Spearing
asked the Secretary of State for Transport what investigation is being undertaken on the Royal Victoria dock swingbridge by or after consultation with the London Docklands Development Corporation; under whose authority the adjacent highway was closed; and when it and the swingbridge will be reopened for traffic.
§ Mrs. Chalker
This is not a matter for my Department. However, I understand that the Connaught road swingbridge has been closed since 10 April by a temporary traffic order made by the local highway authority, the London borough of Newham, under the Road Traffic Regulation Act 1984. The road is expected to be reopened on 1 June.
