HC Deb 09 July 1958 vol 591 cc35-6W
79. Mr. Spence

asked the Secretary of State for Scotland what action he proposes to take to improve road safety conditions where route A96 passes through the town of Huntly, Aberdeenshire.

Mr. N. Macpherson

The only satisfactory solution to the traffic problem at Huntly is the construction of a bypass, the line of which has already been fixed by a Trunk Road Order. My right hon. Friend is not yet able to say when this work can be authorised, but meanwhile he is prepared to consider any measures for the regulation or restriction of traffic which the local authorities may recommend.
