§ Mr. de Freitas
asked the Minister of Transport whether he is aware that, of the 22 miles of the Great North Road which pass through Lincolnshire, only 87W 4½ miles is double-tracked, and that only a further 2½ will be double-tracked by the end of this year; and when he expects the remaining 15 miles to be double-tracked.
§ Mr. Marples
Yes. As I indicated in reply to the hon. Member on 13th May, 10 miles of the remaining 15 miles should have dual carriageways by early in 1962. I cannot yet say how soon funds can be made available for the dualling of the other 5 miles.
