HC Deb 27 June 1978 vol 952 c520W
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.
