asked the Secretary of State for Wales whether further progress has been made with plans to eliminate the dangerous bends in the A5 trunk road in, and in the vicinity of, Maerdy, Clwyd.
As I indicated to my hon. and learned Friend on 24 October—[Vol. 972, c. 191]—a route study of the A5 is being undertaken to determine what improvements may be needed. This route study covers the area of Maerdy.
