HC Deb 03 April 1957 vol 568 c382
11. Mr. Gower

asked the Minister of Transport and Civil Aviation what improvements will be carried out during the next two years in the main Gloucester to Cardiff road; and to what extent these will include schemes for by-passing the main towns.

Mr. Nugent

We expect that twenty-one improvement schemes will be started during the next two years on the main Gloucester to Cardiff road. These do not include any by-passes.

Mr. Gower

With reference to the need for by-passes, will my hon. Friend examine carefully the inadequacy of the narrow bridge and very steep hill at Chepstow and also the extreme danger of that hill?

Mr. Nugent

My right hon. Friend and I recently received a deputation concerning Chepstow, but I am afraid that I can hold out no hope of a by-pass there in the near future.
