HC Deb 18 December 1989 vol 164 c4W
Mr. Lee

To ask the Secretary of State for Transport what is his latest assessment of the level of overcrowding in the Foulridge bypass; if he will bring about an early start to the construction of the Foulridge bypass; and if he will make a statement.

Mr. Atkins

These are matters of Lancashire county council as the highway authority for the A56 north of Burnley. I understand that the council hopes to start construction of a Colne-Foulridge bypass in late 1991. I shall write to my hon. Friend.
