Mr. Coombs

asked the Secretary of State for Transport what plans he has to improve the north-south traffic routes in Wiltshire.

Mr. Michael Spicer

There are two trunk roads running roughly north-south through Wiltshire. We have a number of planned improvements on them both and these are listed below.On the A36 trunk road—

  • Warminster bypass—main programme 1985–87.
  • Heytesbury bypass—reserve list 1985–87.
  • Codford bypass—resrve list 1985–87.
  • Steeple Langford bypass—reserve list 1985–87.
  • Stapleford-South Newton bypass—reserve list 1985–87.
On the A419 trunk road— Blunsdon-Cricklade dualling — main programme 1985–87.

A scheme for a bypass of Salisbury on the A36 trunk road was added to the trunk road programme last year.

Beyond these all other north-south routes are the responsibility of Wiltshire county council.
