HC Deb 01 March 1978 vol 945 c438
5. Mr Hicks

asked the Secretary of State for Transport if he will state his Department's preferred route in respect of the A38 trunk road improvement between Saltash and Trerulefoot.

Mr. Horam

We hope to do so in April.

Mr. Hicks

I am grateful for that information. When is it likely that a public inquiry will be held, based on the preferred line of route? Second, when is work likely to commence?

Mr. Horam

For the section from Saltash to Trerulefoot, I am afraid that I cannot give the date for a public inquiry. It will depend on the decision which we reach following the public consultation, and then publication of the orders. Until then, we cannot come to the public inquiry. As for the date of opening, we are thinking in terms of 1983–85. That is the date so far given.
