HC Deb 03 November 1959 vol 612 c38W
96. Miss Harvie Anderson

asked the Secretary of State for Scotland when he proposes to authorise a start on the second Clyde tunnel.

Mr. Maclay

I have today authorised Glasgow Corporation to accept a tender for the construction of the second of the twin tunnels under the Clyde at Whiteinch. The cost of this tunnel will be almost £4 million on which grant will be payable at the rate of 75 per cent. The contract will provide that it should be completed by mid-1963.
