HC Deb 22 June 1972 vol 839 c166W
Mr. Wiggin

asked the Secretary of State for the Environment when he expects the Avon Bridge carrying the M5 to be opened to traffic.

Mr. Speed

There have been delays on this project because of the need to check the box girder structure and other difficulties and the completion date is now under review. I cannot give a firm date for opening at present.
