§ 95. Mr. Shepherd
asked the Minister of Transport and Civil Aviation if he is aware of the concern which is felt over the prospective delay in opening up the Kingsway Extension due to the apparent failure of the Manchester City Council to get the bridge over the River Mersey constructed in time; what this delay is now likely to be; and what steps he is taking to minimise it.
§ Mr. Watkinson
I understand that the Manchester City Council expects to complete the bridge on time in October.
