HC Deb 22 June 1964 vol 697 cc22-3W
67. Mr. Steele

asked the Secretary of State for Scotland what progress has been made with construction on the A.74; what work has still to be done; and when he expects the work to be completed.

Mr. Noble

On the 81-mile route from Maryville, near Glasgow, to the Border approximately 37 miles of dual carriageways are complete, 29 miles under construction and 15 miles not yet started. Seven miles now under construction should be opened this summer, another eight miles by next spring and the rest in 1966. Ten of the remaining 15 miles should be finished by the end of 1967 and the rest by 1970.
