HC Deb 10 November 1980 vol 992 cc41-2W
Sir Raymond Gower

asked the Secretary of State for Wales if he is satisfied with progress in the uncompleted parts of the M4 motorway; and if he will make a statement.

Mr. Michael Roberts

Yes. Completion of the Bridgend northern bypass has been delayed by adverse weather conditions, but our current expectation is that it will be open to traffic in the summer of 1981. The inspector's report on the public inquiry into the scheme and associated highway orders for the Baglan/Lonlas section is at present being considered and we will announce our decision as soon as possible.
