HC Deb 15 June 1964 vol 696 c147W
78. Mr. W. Baxter

asked the Secretary of State for Scotland if he will estimate when the trunk road schemes by-passing Denny and Bonnybridge will be completed.

80. Mr. Bence

asked the Secretary of State for Scotland when he expects work will be completed on the trunk road scheme at Cumbernauld.

Mr. Noble

In about three of four weeks one carriageway should be open to traffic on the continuous length of the Cumbernauld and Denny by-passes. Both carriageways should be open by October.

The spur road by-passing Bonnybridge and Larbert, on the road to Kincardine Bridge, was started last September. The work is making good progress and will, I hope, be finished within the 2-year contract period.
