HC Deb 12 February 1976 vol 905 c381W
Mr. Morgan

asked the Secretary of State for Wales (1) why there are at present no major improvement works planned for the section of the A5 trunk road lying within the county of Clwyd;

(2) when he expects work to commence on the construction of the proposed Curwen bypass.

Mr. Barry Jones

Schemes for improvement of A5 between Glyn Bends, Tynant and Dinmael School and at Fron-cysyllte—Gold Club Bends costing around £270,000 and £180,000 respectively are firmly programmed to start as soon as funds become available. The need for major improvement schemes at Corwen and Llangollen is not considered to be of sufficient urgency to justify their addition to the trunk road programme at the present time, but the situation will be kept under review.
