HC Deb 11 December 1963 vol 686 cc86-7W
Mr. Skeet

asked the Minister of Transport for what reasons he is not prepared to build an underpass for the North Circular Road, thus leaving the traffic down Neasden Lane unaffected at the intersection of Neasden Lane and the North Circular Road.

Mr. Marples

As I explained in reply to my hon. Friend's Question on 6th December, no final decision can be taken at present.

The consulting engineers considered an underpass for the North Circular Road but rejected it on the grounds that dual three-lane carriageways would be required to cater for future traffic growth and to provide for this by an underpass would have caused more extensive disruption in the area.
