§ Mr. Poole
asked the Minister of Transport whether he has considered the Nottingham County Council's proposed road improvement scheme between Six Hills and the Fosse-Melton Road cross-roads to Widmerpool; what is the length of road involved; how much land it will be necessary to acquire for carrying out the scheme; and whether he can state the estimated total cost, showing separately the expenditure necessary on the purchase of land or compensation to property interests affected?
§ Mr. Burgin
Preliminary discussions are now proceeding between the technical officers of my Department and the county council and the final details of the scheme have not yet been settled. The length of the road involved is approximately five miles and a provisional estimate of the cost is £150,000 (including £5,000 for land acquisition).
