HC Deb 07 July 1971 vol 820 cc403-5W
90. Mr. John Smith

asked the Secretary of State for Scotland if he will state the traffic flow on the A80 road at Stepps and Millerston, Lanarkshire, in 1965 and at the last available date; and if he will state the present degree of overloading of the road at these points.

Mr. Gordon Campbell

In August, 1965, the A80 between Stepps and Millerston carried 25,000 passenger car units a day; and in August, 1970, the latest date for which comparable information is available, 35,000. Traffic flow of this order is within the practical capacity of the road.
