§ Mr. Nicholas Winterton
asked the Secretary of State for Transport how many trunk and local bypasses are being planned for the constituency of Macclesfield in 1982–83 and 1983–84.
§ Mrs. Chalker
I understand that Cheshire county council plans to open its new A537 east-west route through Macclesfield on 7 December, and that it hopes to start work in 1983–84 on the proposed southerly extension of Churchill Way, Macclesfield. If my hon. Friend would like further information, may I suggest an approach to the county council.
Our proposed A523 Macclesfield relief road is included in the main trunk road programme for 1984 and 1985. Statutory orders were published in October last.
