§ Mr. Boyd-Carpenter
Since the line of the Chester southern ring road, between the Chester-Whitchurch Road A.41 and the Chester-Bangor Road A.55, was established in 1941 under the Trunk Roads Act, 1936, it has become necessary to modify the line because of development which has taken place and in order to avoid the severance of valuable agricultural land. This modification will require an amending order, which I hope to publish in the near future. Thereafter, objections must be considered, if necessary at a public inquiry, and it would be some time before the order could be made. The preparation of engineering details and the acquisition of land cannot be put in hand until the order is made and I am unable at present106W to forecast when it will be possible to authorise construction.
