§ Baroness Gardner of Parkes
asked Her Majesty's Government:
Whether, in view of the fact that present and projected traffic levels no longer justify the construction of the Corwen Bypass/Inner Relief Road on the A.5 between Chirk and Llandegai, they will remove the blight being caused by the present safeguarding of the route for this scheme. [HL1021]
§ Lord Williams of Mostyn
In March 1997, the Welsh Office announced that decisions on improvements at Corwen would be deferred until the feasibility of an inner relief road scheme had been assessed. This now forms part of the overall review of the Welsh trunk road programme launched on 31 July 1997. No decisions on whether to withdraw the projected route for the bypass can be made until the review has been completed.
