HC Deb 19 May 1961 vol 640 c184W
Mr. de Freitas

asked the Minister of Transport how many miles of the Great North Road between Stamford, Lincolnshire, and Newark, Nottinghamshire, are double-track; how many are not; and how many more miles will be double-tracked by Whitsun, 1962.

Mr. Marples

Of the 34¾ miles of the Great North Road between Stamford and Newark, 8¼ at present consist of dual carriageway. Of the remaining 26½ miles a further 10¼ miles of dual carriageway are under construction and due for completion during the first half of 1962. Every effort will be made to have this section open by Whitsun, 1962.
