Yes, sir. Work on a Wrexham bypass should start at the end of 1970 and smaller improvements south of Wrexham should start this year.

I thank my hon. Friend for that reassuring reply, but may I ask whether special consideration will be given to the section of the road near the disused Wynnstay Colliery?

Yes. A road widening and realignment scheme at Wynnstay Colliery is already included. The proposal that I have mentioned will be prepared this year.
