Penwith district council, the A30 Action Group, the Crowlas A30 Action Group, Ludgvan parish council and the Ludgvan conservation society have supported my hon. Friend in pressing for the inclusion in the national roads programme of a bypass for Crowlas.
My hon. Friend will know from letters that he has received from the bodies that he has listed of the strong and entirely justifiable feeling of residents of those communities, whose lives are made a misery by the amount of traffic on the existing road that masquerades as the A30. Will he give an undertaking that the long-awaited bypass will be included in the programme to be announced, presumably, next spring?
Although I am sympathetic to the problems of the A30, is my hon. Friend aware of the difficulties facing my constituents because junction 1 on the M69 goes only in a northerly direction? Will he consider pressing his Department to answer the requests made three years ago for an inquiry into why that is, and take express measures to get the southern link built?
