HC Deb 02 July 1979 vol 969 cc417-8W
Mr. Nicholas Winterton

asked the Minister of Transport whether his Department has been advised of the collapse of a main sewer under a major trunk road in Macclesfield; and what action he intends to take.

Mr. Kenneth Clarke

I have received no report of a sewer collapse on A523 which is the only trunk road in Macclesfield.

A sewer collapsed a week ago in Oxford Road, Macclesfield. This is a local authority road. Repairs are in progress and will take some weeks.

Trunk road traffic is not affected by the roadworks or the associated traffic diversion.
