§ Mr. Hay
We have asked the police to let us have a detailed report on the accidents that have occurred recently on A.449 between Kidderminster and Worcester. We intend, as funds permit, to convert the whole of this road to dual carriageways, including a bypass of Hartlebury, and the report will help us to determine, in the light of the accident record, which sections of the road should be improved first.
