HC Deb 27 February 1963 vol 672 cc162-3W
Mr. W. T. Rodgers

asked the Minister of Transport why sanction has been refused for the construction of a dual carriageway on the ring road between Durham Road and Northern Avenue. Stockton-on-Tees, when the need for it has been accepted in principle, the local authority is anxious to proceed, and the work would provide relief to high and growing unemployment.

Mr. Marples

This scheme is among those which I have specially brought forward in the road programme to help employment in the North East. A single carriageway will be adequate for the traffic for some years. I am anxious for work to begin as soon as possible and I am awaiting engineering details for a single carriageway scheme from the Stockton-on-Tees Borough Council.

Forward to
