§ 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.50W
§ 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.
