Mr. Tom Ellis
asked the Secretary of State for the Environment (1) what means of co-ordination he has for ensuring that the roadway from Wrexham to the M6 is improved uniformly on the English and Welsh sides of the border;
(2) whether he will provide additional funds for improving that part of the Wrexham-M6 road link which lies in Cheshire.
§ Mr. Marks
The A534 is a local authority road for which Clwyd and Cheshire County Councils are the highway authorities. It is for the county councils themselves to decide the priority of individual schemes within their transport policies and programmes and to discuss jointly the arrangements for the programming of schemes which affect both counties.
