HC Deb 27 March 1975 vol 889 cc261-2W
Mr. Churchill

asked the Secretary of State for the Environment what is the result of his Department's consideration with the Greater Manchester Council and interested district councils of means of alleviating traffic congestion on the Barton high level bridge of the M63 motorway.

Mr. Carmichael:

The working party, consisting of the Department, the Greater Manchester Council and the Salford and Trafford Borough Councils, set up to consider this problem has now put forward proposals for traffic management measures which will require orders under the Road Traffic Regulation Act 1967. These proposals are now being considered by the Department.
