§ Mr. Harvey
asked the Secretary of State for Wales, in view of the further serious accident on the Ton-yr-Unto 126W bend, on the Ruthin-Mold road, whether the detailed investigation into the long-term solution has now been completed; and if he will make a statement.
§ Mr. Wyn Roberts
Investigations into a long term solution to the problems posed by the Tan-yr-Unto bend are proceeding as rapidly as possible. It is important: to identify the most sensible solution but I assure my hon. Friend that I shall make a further announcement as soon as I can. In the meantime we are doing all possible to improve the safety of the existing road: a double safety barrier, an earth bund and an arrestor bed for runaway vehicles are being constructed at the bend. Completion of these measures is expected by the end of July.
