HC Deb 13 February 1957 vol 564 c175W
37. Mr. Bellenger

asked the Minister of Transport and Civil Aviation what is the position with regard to the construction of the West Drayton diversion, Nottinghamshire, part of the East Retford by-pass.

Mr. Watkinson

The West Drayton Diversion was opened to traffic yesterday, except that, for a quarter of a mile at the western end, only one carriageway can be used until the widening of the bridge over the river is completed. The second carriageway over the river should be available for traffic within the next three months.
