HC Deb 03 April 1974 vol 871 c357W
47. Mr. Paul Dean

asked the Secretary of State for the Environment what steps he is taking to ensure that the Avon Bridge carrying the M5 motorway is open for this year's summer traffic.

Mr. Carmichael

Work is now progressing satisfactorily and, whilst the contract completion date is 1st September 1974, every effort is being made to complete earlier.
