HC Deb 13 July 1955 vol 543 c187W
Mr. Proctor

asked the Minister of Transport and Civil Aviation if he will now make a statement regarding Barton Bridge, indicating what progress has been made towards building this bridge, which is urgently required.

Mr. Boyd-Carpenter

As I indicated in my statement on 2nd February, I am prepared to authorise this project during the period 1956–57 to 1958–59. The preparation of details, and of a scheme under Section 1 of the Special Roads Act, 1949, is a matter for the Lancashire County Council as highway authority, and I understand it has this work in hand.
