HC Deb 22 July 1964 vol 699 cc81-2W
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. A start on the dual carriageways between this point and A452 will depend on the progress of the statutory processes and acquisition of land.
