HC Deb 04 November 1959 vol 612 c48W
71 and 72. Mr. Anthony Greenwood

asked the Minister of Transport (1) when work will start on the Edenfield by-pass;

(2) when he anticipates that work will be started on by-passing the level crossing at Rawtenstall.

Mr. J. Hay

It is now clear that a single by-pass for both Edenfield and Rawtenstall would be more satisfactory than separate schemes. We are taking steps to establish the line of this combined by-pass as soon as practicable, but I cannot say yet how soon constructional work can be started.
