HC Deb 01 July 1959 vol 608 cc49-50W
58. Sir A. Hurd

asked the Minister of Transport and Civil Aviation how many acres per mile he estimates will be taken for the London-Yorkshire motorway; and what is the total acreage involved in the road development programme for the next two years.

Mr. Nugent

Up to 30 acres of land per mile will be required for the London-Yorkshire Motorway based upon the provision of dual 3-line carirageways. As a rough estimate, a total of some 3,500 acres wil be required for the new road schemes for which we are responsible this year and next.
