§ Mr. Wingfield Digby
asked the Minister of Transport what is the extra strengthening required by new roads and motor- 392W ways, including their bridges, to provide for fifty or more heavy commercial vehicles per hour; and what is the extra cost per mile.
§ Mr. Marples
All new roads except those designed for purely residential purposes are constructed to standards which provide for daily traffic including at least 1,500 commercial vehicles of over 30 cwt. unladen weight. In these circumstances, no question of extra cost arises.
