§ Mr. Ernest Davies
asked the Minister of Transport and Civil Aviation when it is anticipated that the A.1 will be dual-carriageway throughout its length.
§ Mr. Watkinson
I hope to authorise within the next two financial years all the schemes on A.1 between London and Newcastle which provide for dual carriageways where a single two-lane carriageway now exists. Lengths of single three-lane carriageway will be replaced by dual carriageways as fast as funds will allow.
