§ Sir C. CAYZER
asked the Minister of Transport for how long it is anticipated that the present weight restrictions on the use of the Menai Bridge are to continue; what would be the cost of replacing the present structure with an adequate toll-free bridge; and what has been the excess of toll revenue over maintenance expenditure during the past 15 years?
§ Mr. HORE-BELISHA
The weight restriction must continue until the bridge is either strengthened or reconstructed. No scheme has been prepared for replacing the present structure and I am, therefore, unable to state what the cost would be. The excess of the net toll revenue over maintenance expenditure during the past 15 years amounted to approximately £110,000.
