HC Deb 08 November 1971 vol 825 cc623-4
10. Mr. Michael Roberts

asked the Secretary of State for Wales what proposals he is considering to provide a permanent access to the Gabalfa Estate for westbound traffic from Western Avenue.

Mr. Gibson-Watt:

I am considering various possibilities in conjunction with the Cardiff City Council, including possible variations of a grade, separated junction and other alternatives. It may, however, be difficult to find a place in the road programme for a scheme of this type in the very near future.

Mr. Roberts:

Is my hon. Friend aware that the residents on the Gabalfa Estate for the last three years have been under a great strain because of the proposal for the Llantrisant radial road, and that this is a further worry to them? Will he expedite a satisfactory solution?

Mr. Gibson-Watt:

Yes, I am aware of the problems of the hon. Gentleman's constituents. We shall certainly waste no time in considering this matter.
