HC Deb 26 April 1972 vol 835 c296W
Mr. Luce

asked the Secretary of State for the Environment what progress has been made on the review of the safety of steel box girder bridges.

Mr. Graham Page

Twenty-five box girder bridges are still subject to restrictions. The strengthening of nine of these bridges is in progress or due to start shortly; and appraisals of the remaining 16 bridges are in hand. Everything possible is being done to complete this work as soon as possible.
