HC Deb 04 June 1930 vol 239 cc2149-50
58. Mr. HOPKIN

asked the Minister of Transport if his attention has been drawn to the present state of Carmarthen Town Bridge as the result of the recent accident; if he is satisfied as to the safety of the bridge; and if he proposes to do anything to accelerate the building of the new bridge?


No report has reached my Department of any recent accident to the Carmarthen Town Bridge, but the condition of the structure is such as to cause some concern, and my Department has discussed with the local authorities on several occasions the best means for providing improved traffic facilities. I hope that these discussions may result in the production of a scheme which the local authorities will be prepared to carry out with assistance from the Road Fund.
