§ 15. Sir L. Ropner
asked the Minister of Transport how many accidents have taken place at the intersection of York Road and Wetherby by-pass since the by-pass was built; and when it is expected that the proposed flyover will be completed at this junction.
§ Mr. Galbraith
In the four years since the by-pass was opened there have been thirty-one accidents at this junction. In two of these there were fatal injuries, and in another seven there were serious injuries. There have been objections to the draft Order in which we are seeking authority to provide the flyover. But we hope to resolve these soon and, if all goes well, to start work by the autumn of next year. Construction of the flyover will take about twelve months.
