HC Deb 08 December 1988 vol 143 c244W
Mr. Tony Banks

To ask the Secretary of State for Transport what information he has as to the causes of the severe traffic congestion in the east end of London on Friday 2 December.

Mr. Peter Bottomley

A number of incidents contributed to the evening traffic congestion in east London on 2 December.

In particular an accident on the westbound carriageway of A13 Canning Town flyover meant that westbound traffic was restricted to one lane for one and three quarter hours from 3.34 pm.
