asked the Secretary of State for Wales whether further progress has been made with plans to eliminate the dangerous bends in the A44 between Aberystwyth and Ponterwyd; and if he will make a statement.
A number of improvements have been carried out to the A44 in recent years, including the bypass of Llanbadarn Fawr, which opened to the public early this year. Three schemes involving general improvements are currently under construction and nearing completion; they are at Mount Garage junction at Ponterwyd. Capel Bangor Slip and Cwm Brwyno culvert. Negotiations are also proceeding to acquire the land necessary for an improvement at Gwarllan Cottage.
