§ 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; 
(2) whether a Government Minister will attend the opening of the Bingley Relief Road. 
§ 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.
