HC Deb 05 March 1968 vol 760 c74W
Mr. Arthur Pearson

asked the Secretary of State for Wales what plans he has for the further improvement of trunk roads in Wales.

Mr. Cledwyn Hughes

I am immediately adding to the preparation pool a dual carriageway intermediate by-pass of Cardiff. This will be designed as a continuation of Eastern Avenue, running to the south of Llantrisant from where it will continue to the Bridgend area along the line of the eventual extension of the M4 motorway close to the mouths of the valleys. By preparing the scheme now we shall be ready to build it as soon as the resources can be made available.

I intend to announce further additions to the preparation pool of trunk road schemes later this year.
