HC Deb 02 February 1987 vol 109 c523W
35. Mr. Ashby

asked the Secretary of State for Transport how many towns have benefited from the completion of bypasses since 1979.

Mr. Peter Bottomley

Sixty-seven trunk road bypass or relief road schemes have been completed since 1979. Some of these have relieved more than one community. Certain other completed schemes have also taken traffic out of communities.
