Work involved demolishing a large tract of properties through Nicholas Street and Watergate Street and building a flyover across the North Wales Mainline railway. A new opening also had to be constructed through Chester's city walls. In 1966 St Martin's Gate was opened by Minister of Transport, Barbara Castle.1 The whole inner ring road project was completed by 1972.
