§ Mr. N. Macpherson
My right hon. Friend hopes that the strengthening and widening of the railway bridge will be completed by the autumn; only one-way traffic is in operation now but two-way traffic should be resumed by the end of next month. The diversion of the road at Prestwick Airport will be completed this week and is already open to traffic
§ Mr. Ross
Does not the hon. Gentleman think it was rather unfortunate to have these schemes within a hundred yards of one another going on at the same time? It is satisfactory to know that the one at Prestwick Airport is more or less complete, but it is not very good news to know that it will take until the autumn for the widening of this bridge. Surely it could have been got on with much quicker than that?
§ Mr. Woodburn
Is it not about time that the more comprehensive scheme was started of putting the road below ground level to make room for the new runway to meet the needs of new aircraft?
