HC Deb 22 March 1961 vol 637 c45W
62. Mr. de Freitas

asked the Minister of Transport approximately how many miles of the Great North Road in Lincolnshire now have two tracks and one track, respectively; and when he expects the whole of the Lincolnshire section to have two tracks.

Mr. Hay

Dual carriageways are open to traffic on 5¾ miles of the Great North Road in Lincolnshire. Work is now in hand on the construction of a further 11¾ miles of dual carriageway, one mile of which should be completed by the summer and the remainder during the first half of 1962. The remaining 5¼ miles within the county consists mainly of 3-lane single carriageway, and the dualling of these sections will be undertaken as funds permit.
