To ask the Secretary of State for Wales when it is now proposed that a start will be made on the Baglan-Lonlas motorway section; and if he will give further consideration to the need to divide the work into two parts and build a bridge to relieve the existing conditions.

Tenders for the Earlswood-Lonlas section were received on 15 December and provided they are of satisfactory construction should start before the end of this financial year. Combining the remaining contracts would not achieve an earlier completion of the motorway. An improvement scheme at Baglan roundabout is currently under way, and others at Briton Ferry and Earlswood roundabouts are expected to start early in 1990. All are designed to improve traffic flows on the A48 trunk road.
