HC Deb 21 May 1973 vol 857 cc20-1W
Mr. Tom King

asked the Secretary of State for the Environment whether any traffic censuses have been done on the A30/A303 since the opening of the M4; and whether this indicates any transfer from the former to the latter of traffic bound for the South West.

Mr. Speed

The M4 was completed at the end of 1971 and census figures are available only for limited sections of A30 /A303 for 1972. It is too early to determine whether any transfer of traffic to M4 has occurred.
