30. Mr. Edwin Wainwright

asked the Minister of Transport if he will take steps to improve the present road system between South Yorkshire and Manchester.

Mr. Kenneth Clarke

The current road programme includes schemes to improve the A616/A628 route with bypasses of Stocksbridge to the east of the Pennines, and Mottram, Hollingworth and Tintwistle to the west. Limited improvements are also being made to the central section within the Peak District national park.
