HC Deb 24 July 1964 vol 699 c168W
Mr. Duffy

asked the Minister of Transport what percentage growth of traffic he expects by 1970 on the A.62 between Huddersfield and Oldham; and what plans he has for the improvement of this road.

Mr. Marples

By 1970 traffic on this section of trunk road A.62 is expected to increase by about 48 per cent. As the Lancashire-Yorkshire motorway will draw off approximately 60 per cent. of traffic from the road, any improvements carried out will be limited to minor widening works to improve visibility on bends.
