HC Deb 17 May 1985 vol 79 c253W
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.
