HC Deb 22 February 1954 vol 524 cc5-6W
64. Mrs. White

asked the Minister of Transport and Civil Aviation how the £17 million to be spent on road improvements in Wales will be allocated between the different counties and county boroughs.

Mr. Molson

£17 million is an estimate of the cost of the programme of improvements to road communications within West South Wales and between that area and the Midlands and London outlined by my right hon. and learned Friend the Home Secretary and Minister for Welsh Affairs on 8th December last. These schemes all relate to trunk roads, for which the Minister is the highway authority, except for one scheme in Swansea county borough. One very large scheme, the Ross Spur Road, is in England.
