HC Deb 24 April 1968 vol 763 c57W
64. Sir M. Stoddart-Scott

asked the Minister of Transport when the next census of heavy traffic will be taken on the A625 between Harewood Bridge and Pool-in-Wharfedale; what has caused the increase of the traffic on this narrow twisting road with three miles of bends; how broad is the road in front of Bradley's Farm; and what plans he has for broadening the road at this dangerous point.

Mr. Marsh

The West Riding County Council, as highway authority, has no plans for a further census. We are not aware of any significant increase in traffic on this road. On the question of improvement of the road, the narrowest part of which in front of Bradley's Farm is just under 16 feet, I have nothing to add to the reply given to the hon. and gallant Member on 3rd April.—[Vol. 762, c.102.]
