§ 54. Mr. William Wells
asked the Minister of Transport when he proposes to convert the parts of the A.5 that pass through Brownhills urban district to a dual carriageway.
§ Mr. Marples
A scheme to provide dual carriageways over one mile in length between the junctions with A.452 and Newtown Railway Bridge is programmed. The bridge too, will be reconstructed and re-aligned and work on this is expected to begin early next year. A82W start on the dual carriageways between this point and A452 will depend on the progress of the statutory processes and acquisition of land.
