40. Colonel.J. R. H. Hutchison
asked the Minister of Transport what is the expenditure contemplated this year on the highway between Glasgow and Stirling near Cumbernauld.
§ Mr. Barnes
Apart from day-to-day maintenance, about £28,000 will be expended during the current financial year on strengthening the haunches and resurfacing a length of 2¾ miles near Cumbernauld.
Is the Minister aware that it appears that this highway is being taken up and restored to practically the same condition that it was in before, without any important widening of a main thoroughfare of that kind? Does the Minister check that expenditure as being really worth incurring?
