HC Deb 10 December 2003 vol 415 cc516-7W
Mr. Damian Green

To ask the Secretary of State for Transport (1) when the Bingley Relief Road is due to be(a) completed and (b) opened; [140926]

(2) whether a Government Minister will attend the opening of the Bingley Relief Road. [141105]

Mr. Jamieson

The A650 Bingley Relief Road will open to traffic at the earliest opportunity after construction is completed and the necessary safety checks have been undertaken. I expect that the scheme should be ready to open to traffic late December/early January. Arrangements are being made for a Minister to officially dedicate the road early in the new year.
