§ Mr. Geraint Howells
asked the Secretary of State for Wales if his Department has plans to upgrade or improve any of the Ceredigion roads during the next five years; and if he will make a statement.
§ Mr. Barry Jones
Subject to the satisfactory completion of statutory procedures I expect to start work on the improvement of the A487 trunk road between Furnace Bridge and Eglwys Fach at a cost of over £700,000 early next year and on the construction of the £2 million Cardigan Bypass in 1982-83. A further nine smaller schemes for the improvement of trunk roads estimated to cost in total over £2 million are also expected to start during the next five years.
The improvement of non-trunk roads is a matter for Dyfed County Council.
