It is hoped to complete this work during the coming summer. Meanwhile I can assure my hon. Friend that the work has been going forward, and that, in consequence the plant on the site has not been idle.
Is the hon. Member aware that that answer is similar to one which I received on this subject two years ago? Does not the hon. Member think that it is time to finish the work or drop it altogether?
The hon. Member will be aware that this is a very big piece of work, and that a viaduct 580 yards long is being built. That has been the main obstacle to rapid progress, but it is hoped to open one half of the width of the road by August of this year.
