HC Deb 18 May 1977 vol 932 c157W
49. Mr. Wall

asked the Secretary of State for Transport if he will make a statement on the progress of construction of the Humber Bridge and associated roads.

Mr. Horam

It is understood that construction of the bridge is proceeding satisfactorily. The Humber Bridge Board, which is responsible for the project, has not recently revised its target opening date of March 1979. The associated roadworks on both the north and the south sides of the river are under construction and are expected to be in use by the time the bridge is opened.
