HC Deb 01 December 1965 vol 721 c185W
37. Mr. Longden

asked the Minister of Transport whether in view of the facts that it is anticiplated that 39,000 passenger-car-units will flow daily between Beechtree and Berrygrove on the M.1 motorway and that this exceeds the design capacity of a dual two-lane motorway, he will now widen this section into a three-lane motorway so that it will conform with the existing M.1 and with its southern extension now under construction.

Mr. Tom Fraser

The future of the southern section of M.1 will be included in the study that my Department is making of the improvement of inter-urban routes in the 1970's.
