§ Sir J. Eden
asked the Minister of Transport for how long a section of the A303 at Stonehenge is to remain blocked to traffic; what is the nature of the work being done; and why this could not have been done before the peak holiday traffic period had begun.
§ Mr. Swingler
800 yards of the section of trunk road A303 between the junctions with A344 and A360 will remain closed until towards the end of this month. The length concerned, where traffic conditions have been dangerous, is being regraded and the work includes filling up a dip. Subject to favourable weather conditions the scheme will be completed before the heaviest traffic flow.
