HC Deb 10 July 1957 vol 573 c45W
Mrs. Butler

asked the Minister of Transport and Civil Aviation how much of the 280-miles length of the A.1 trunk road between London and Newcastle he expects will be a dual carriageway by the end of 1959.

Mr. Watkinson

I expect that about 70 miles of dual carriageway will be open to traffic by the end of 1959, and that a further 70 miles will then be under construction.
