HC Deb 04 November 1959 vol 612 cc44-5W
41. Mr. Swingler

asked the Minister of Transport if he will now sanction the trunk road improvement scheme from London Road to Milehouse Lane in Newcastle-under-Lyme.

Mr. Hay

Constructional work cannot be authorised until the preparatory work, which is now proceeding, has been completed. This now includes, in addition to the making of Statutory Orders and land acquisition, an Origin and Destination Survey. This will help to determine the design of junctions between the new by-pass and A.53 and A.525. All these steps must necessarily take some considerable time, but we will get on as quickly as we can.
