§ Mr. Arbuthnot
To ask the Secretary of State for Transport if he will set out the extent to which the proposal in the planning application No. 322/88, LRO(T) Reference GLRT 41 35027/3/0287, which the Department of Transport on 25 April 1988 directed the London borough of Redbridge to refuse, would have required modifications to the Made Line and Side Roads Order 1986.
§ Mr. Atkins
[holding answer 2 February 1990]: The need to maintain minimum clearance of underground structures at Wanstead LT station would have required the centre line of the developers' wider tunnel to run about 1.5m north of that established for the Department's tunnel by the made London-Great Yarmouth Trunk Road (Al2) (Eastway to Eastern Avenue) and (Slip Roads at Wanstead) Order 1986. The developers' tunnel needed to be wider to accommodate mechnical ventilation equipment made necessary by its extra length.
That would have required republication of the line order. The planning application would also have affected slip roads at the Green Man interchange and in turn related made side road orders.
