HC Deb 23 March 1967 vol 743 c360W
Mr. Alan Williams

asked the Secretary of State for Wales how the actual rate of expansion in the traffic using the Port Talbot by-pass compares with that anticipated when the by-pass was planned; and what changes have been made in the date at which traffic is expected to reach saturation point.

Mr. Cledwyn Hughes

The by-pass has not been open long enough to judge its effect on traffic growth. The proportion of the total traffic on the A48 road east of the by-pass which uses the bypass is about what was expected.
