§ 30. Mr. Barry Jones
asked the Secretary of State for Wales what is the commencement date and estimated cost of the Hawarden bypass; and if he will publish in the OFFICIAL REPORT the proposed line of the Hawarden bypass and its proximity to the line of the Flintshire portion of the Chester southern bypass.
§ Mr. Peter Thomas
This scheme is part of a westerly continuation of the Chester southerly Bypass from Broughton to Ewloe, estimated to cost £3.5 million. Possible routes are still being investigated and I hope to publish my proposals at the end of 1972. I cannot yet forecast a starting date.
