asked the Secretary of State for Wales if he will list those bypasses or trunk roads in Wales which have not yet had work commenced on them but which are in the firm road programme, together with the latest estimated commencement date for each project.

Details of bypass schemes included in the trunk road programme, together with an indication of possible start dates, will be given in the next edition of "Roads in Wales", which I expect to be available early in the new year.

asked the Secretary of State for Wales if he will list the bypasses currently being built on trunk roads in Wales, the date at which each is expected to be completed, and the cost of each such project.

There is no precise definition of the term "bypass", but schemes which I would consider falling in that category currently under construction are as follows:
