§ Mr. R. EVANS
asked the Minister of Transport whether he can state the number of level crossings there are in Wales and Monmouthshire; and also the number in respect of which proposals to abolish them have been submitted to his department?
§ Mr. HORE-BELISHA
There are 513 level crossings in Wales and Monmouthshire of which 230 are on classified roads. One crossing will be abolished when the new Carmarthen Town Bridge is completed and it is proposed to deal with two others, also in Carmarthenshire. No other proposals are before me at present.
