HC Deb 08 March 1948 vol 448 c109W
5. Mr. Sharp

asked the Minister of Transport by how much the roadway under the low railway bridge at Hodgson Lane, Drighlington, requires lowering to permit the use of double-decker buses on the Leeds-Halifax Road, and when he proposes that this work will be completed so that adequate bus services can be provided.

Mr. Barnes

An increase in the headroom of this bridge from 14 ft. 4 in. to 16 ft. 6 in. is under consideration, and I hope that it will be possible to put the work in hand at an early date.
