§ 60. Mr. Gower
asked the Minister of Transport and Civil Aviation if, in order to meet the particular problems of South Wales, he will expedite the chief road schemes already approved, including the Ross Spur project and the Aberavon By 425 pass; and if he will advance the date for the Head of the Valleys road scheme.
§ Mr. Watkinson
I inaugurated the construction of the Ross Spur on 3rd March. Work is well advanced on the Neath By-pass, and we are proceeding as quickly as possible with the necessary preliminary work on the Aberavon Bypass and the Heads of the Valleys Road.
