Contents of note

  • Evidence of three further property purchases.
  • The road is now, from the start of this file, reliably referred to as Ringway 2.
  • A misfiled report about Radial Route 7 - M12 to you and me - that is similar, if not identical, to one at MT 106/454.
  • Minutes of a meeting held with representatives of Merton Borough Council, which refer to the temporary terminus of R2 on the A24 as "abortive", with indications it would be rebuilt to a different layout when R2 was extended on to Wandsworth.
  • A letter, dated 6 May 1969, from Bromley Borough Council to Vigars and co, complaining their develpoment committee are being "kept in ignorance" about Ringway 2.
