§ 23. Mr. Proctor
asked the Minister of Transport if he will now make a statement regarding his efforts to ease the congestion at Barton swing bridge, Manchester, during the peak hours.
§ Mr. Barnes
Discussions have taken place between my Divisional Road Engineer and the Manchester Ship Canal 1677 Company. They are now examining the practicability of arranging for a further period of some 20 minutes at the evening peak during which the opening of the bridge would be restricted, and I am awaiting a further report.
