HC Deb 23 July 1970 vol 804 c213W
83. Mr. Meacher

asked the Minister of Transport what are his plans for traffic from the Oldham area wishing to travel south or west to Wales to enable it to avoid the bottleneck of Manchester.

Mr. Michael Heseltine

This traffic will be served by the 7½ mile length of the Manchester Outer Ring Road between the Failsworth By-Pass and the Bredbury By-Pass, a scheme for which has been included in the Principal Road Preparation List.
