§ Mr. Corbett
To ask the Secretary of State for Transport whether he will take urgent steps to ensure that all road signs indicating the former A361 road from junction 25 of the M5 through Taunton to Barnstaple now show its new road number of B3227.
§ Mr. Atkins
[holding answer 19 March 1990]: Following the completion of the new north Devon link road in July last year, the former A361 trunk road from junction 25 on the M5 through Taunton to Barnstaple was reclassified and renumbered B3227. Signs on this road are the responsibility of the highway authorities—Devon and Somerset county councils—which assure me that all signs on it now show its new number.
