HC Deb 28 November 1973 vol 865 cc151-2W
Mr. Hardy

asked the Secretary of State for the Environment what further action is proposed to reduce risk on the A57 in the parish of Aston-cum-Aughton.

Mr. Speed

The Handsworth to Howarth Hall section of the Sheffield-Rotherham Link will open on 29th November. This should reduce the number of heavy goods vehicles using the A57.

In order to improve conditions for pedestrians, further consideration is being given to the possible rearrangement of bus stops on the A57 in Aston-cum-Aughton. I shall write to the hon. Member letting him know the outcome.
