§ Mr. A. Pearson
asked the Minister of Transport if he is aware that the success of the experimental one-way traffic in Pontypridd town centre largely depends upon the implementation of the Sardis Road—Mill Street road bridge scheme 120W together with the Bridge Street and Cross-brook Street widenings; and, in view of the occasional traffic congestion now occurring, if he will take action to accelerate the execution of these schemes.
§ Mr. Marples
I understand that the experimental one-way system in Pontypridd has been a success even without the road improvements mentioned by the hon. Member.
Everything is being done to expedite the bridge scheme but the layout depends on the results of a recent traffic survey. I shall also consider the highway authority's proposals for the widening of Bridge Street and Crossbrook Street, but I cannot say when I shall be able to find a place for them in my programme.
