HC Deb 03 December 1958 vol 596 c149W
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.
