HC Deb 01 June 1960 vol 624 c1416
10. Mr. Gower

asked the Minister of Transport if he will expedite the improvement of the road communication between the Whitchurch, Glamorgan, Manor Way by-pass and Pontypridd; and if he will make a statement.

Mr. Hay

We are pressing on with our plans for this road but we have not yet quite completed our investigation of the scheme for making use of the abandoned railway. This must be done before the necessary statutory Order can be made.

Mr. Gower

Will my hon. Friend take account of the fact that the full benefit can accrue from the considerable amount of money which has been spent on this Manor Way by-pass only if there is an extension of the road at a fairly early date?

Mr. Hay

Yes, Sir.
