HC Deb 30 November 1973 vol 865 cc229-30W
Mr. Fry

asked the Secretary of State for the Environment if he will give a firm date for the replacement of the Nine Arches Bridge at Thropston, Northamptonshire.

Mr. Speed

No. The replacement is a principal road scheme and Northants County Council is responsible for its

preparation and programming. It is, however, expected at present that the works will be completed by September 1977 at the earliest.
