§ Mr. Gordon Wilson
asked the Secretary of State for Scotland what progress is being made towards improvement of trunk roads in Dundee; and what are the projected costs for improvements already planned.
§ Mr. McElhone
Improvement of the western part of A972 Kingsway trunk road in Dundee is being planned.
The statutory orders for the first phase were published in June 1976 and I hope that the last of the objections lodged against them will be withdrawn shortly. The other phases are at an earlier stage of consideration and similar statutory procedures will be necessary.
The estimated cost at November 1976 prices for the first phase is £3.7 million, but detailed estimates of the cost of the remaining improvements are not available.
