HC Deb 12 November 1979 vol 973 c443W
Mr. Rowlands

asked the Secretary of State for Wales whether he will list the trunk road projects which will be started in 1980–81 and the estimated expenditure on each of those projects in that year.

Mr. Michael Roberts

Subject to the satisfactory completion of statutory procedures and contractual arrangements, I hope that new starts will include among the major schemes phase I of the ASS Colcon scheme, the Hawarden bypass, the Carmarthen southern bypass and the widening of the M4 between the Coldra and Caerleon interchanges; and among smaller schemes the Pontyfenni diversion on the A40. The projected programme for 1980–81 is being drawn up and the main items will be published in due course as an appendix to the Supply Estimates.
