§ Mr. Latham
asked the Minister of Transport whether he will make a statement on the progress of the scheme to improve Muston Bends, Leicestershire, on the A52 trunk road, in view of the very bad accident record there.
§ Mr. Kenneth Clarke
The improvement of the A52 at Muston Bends is being prepared urgently because of the bad accident record. We hope to complete the statutory procedures and, subject to the agreement of British Rail to the removal of the railway bridge, start construction towards the end of 1981.
