HL Deb 11 March 1983 vol 440 c468WA
Lord Granville of Eye

asked Her Majesty's Government:

What plans exist for a by-pass to reduce heavy lorry traffic through Cheltenham.

Lord Lucas of Chilworth

Proposals have been published to give trunk road status to the A.436 route between Shipton Solers and Birdlip, and additionally preparation is in hand for a by-pass of Brockworth on the A.417 road to the west. In the Government's view the provision of this by-pass, together with the improvement of the A.436, will be the best way of providing an alternative route for heavy goods vehicles and other traffic not wishing to stop in Cheltenham.
