asked the Minister of Transport if, in the proposed planning of the Oldham internal ring road, provision will be made for the existing Ashton to Rochdale road to overpass the proposed ring road and to include the adjacent junction with the existing major east-west road in the town centre.

As the Oldham internal ring road is a potential classified road the planning of it is primarily a matter for the Oldham Corporation, which is the local highway authority. I have not yet received firm proposals from the Corporation, but I understand it is proposed that the ring road, which would become the main east-west route for through traffic, should pass under the Ashton to Rochdale road.
