HC Deb 20 July 1987 vol 120 c42W
Mr. Fearn

asked the Secretary of State for Transport if he has any plans to create a bypass around the bottleneck on the Ormskirk-Southport road to allow greater access to Southport.

Mr. Peter Bottomley

A recent study into long-distance traffic needs in the Preston area and west of the M6 points to a need for bypasses of Ormskirk and of Scarisbrick-Pinfold. Consideration is being given to the study's conclusions.
