HC Deb 04 November 1959 vol 612 c48W
70. Sir A. Hurd

asked the Minister of Transport if a decision has now been reached on the line of the proposed north-south relief road at Newbury; and when construction will begin.

Mr. Marples

In view of the rapid increase in traffic on route A.34, I am considering whether an outer by-pass with dual carriageways would be more satisfactory than the proposed inner relief road. Until this is decided, I cannot say when construction will start.
