§ 40. Mr. Jeffrey Thomas
asked the Secretary of State for Wales what studies are at present being undertaken by his Department with regard to roads in Monmouthshire; when they will be completed; and what action he intends to take.
§ Mr. Peter Thomas
The trunk road system is kept under continuous review by my Department and a working party is considering the need for a second bypass of Newport. A land use/transportation study commissioned by Monmouthshire County Council for the county has recently been completed and I understand the consultants' final report is expected shortly.
