HC Deb 12 December 1961 vol 651 c42W
Mr. A. Pearson

asked the Minister of Transport what progress is being made towards the solution of the town centre traffic problem in Pontypridd through which the A.470 trunk road runs; and if he will make a statement.

Mr. Marples

I have told the local highway authority that I am prepared to consider making a grant towards the Town Centre Improvement Scheme in 1962–63. The improvement of A.470 at Pontypridd is a separate matter. It is part of the plan for the comprehensive improvement of the Taff Vale road. Consultants are preparing a revised scheme, but I cannot say when I shall be able to authorise this very expensive project.
