HC Deb 27 July 1965 vol 717 cc74-5W
Mr. Jopling

asked the Minister of Transport what will be the height of the bridge where the proposed M.6 motorway crosses the A.65 road between Kendal and Kirkby Lonsdale; how much of the land belonging to the proprietors of Canal Garage, Preston Patrick will be taken by the proposed motorway; to what extent the existing visual approach from Kendal to Canal Garage will be impaired or obscured; and how much clear space will be left under the motorway bridge to the north of the verge of the A.65 road.

Mr. Tom Fraser

A draft Scheme to fix the route of the motorway between Carnforth and Killington was published in May. Until it has been made the detailed design of the A.65 crossing cannot usefully be worked out nor land requirements defined. It is expected that the bridge will be of open construction with headroom not less than 16 ft. 6 in.
