HC Deb 24 November 1965 vol 721 c62W
Mr. Armstrong

asked the Minister of Transport, in view of the recent increase in heavy traffic on the A.68 at Witton-le-Wear, if he will give priority to the construction of the proposed by-pass.

Mr. Tom Fraser

I have no evidence of any exceptional increase in heavy traffic at Witton-le-Wear, but the bypass proposed by Durham County Council, as highway authority, will be considered for a future extension of the classified road programme.
