§ Dr. Roger Thomas
asked the Secretary of State for Wales, in view of the current expenditure on the A48 Nantycaws improvements, which will be obsolete when the Carmarthen southern bypass is 228W opened, if he will expedite the stating date of that bypass.
§ Mr. Michael Roberts
The small improvement on the A48 west of Nantycaws now nearing completion will be of benefit to local traffic still using the road after the Carmarthen southern bypass is completed. Statutory procedures permitting, I hope it will be possible for work on the Carmarthen southern bypass to start in the next financial year.
