HC Deb 03 March 1965 vol 707 c247W
60. Mr. Albert Roberts

asked the Minister of Transport if he is satisfied that the width in the accepted tender for the Tinsley Viaduct, which is 5 ft. less than all the designs submitted, will prove adequate; and why he accepted a design which goes outside the requirements to cater for settlements of previously accepted memoranda on this subject.

Mr. Tom Fraser

The reduction is in the width of the central reserve and not of the carriageways or hard shoulders. I am satisfied that the design complies in all respects with current standards.
