HC Deb 03 February 1960 vol 616 cc132-3W
Mr. Ian Fraser

asked the Minister of Transport what plans he has for improving the A.38 road between Plymouth and Exeter.

Mr. Marples

I am planning eventually to provide a dual carriageway road throughout A.38 between Plymouth and Exeter, but I cannot yet say how soon this work will be carried out. One scheme for the provision of over half a mile of dual carriageway at Redcross Hill is, however, due to start early this summer.
