HC Deb 17 March 1965 vol 708 c279W
Mr. Maxwell-Hyslop

asked the Minister of Transport what progress is being made in the placing of contracts for the improvement and replacement of the A.38 between Bristol and Exeter.

Mr. Tom Fraser

Improvement schemes estimated to cost about £2.7 million are in progress or soon to be started in this stretch of road. The current motorway programme provides for the replacement of A.38 by motorway from Bristol to East Brent, and a survey is now in progress to determine the line of a new road from East Brent to Exeter.
