§ Mr. Pearson
asked the Minister of Transport and Civil Aviation when it is proposed, in view of the new programme 100W of road development, to realign and improve by the provision of dual-carriageways on A.470 between Cardiff and Pontypridd, including the construction of the Tongwynlais Diversion, Taff Well, Nantgarw and Rhydyfelin Diversions and the Glyntaff and Pontypridd Diversion.
§ Mr. Boyd-Carpenter
I hope to authorise the completion of the Whitchurch by-pass during the current financial year. I am unable at present to say when it will be possible to begin the improvement of the remainder of this road as far as Pontypridd, including the diversions to which the hon. Member refers.
