HC Deb 20 January 1965 vol 705 cc68-9W
Mr. Gresham Cooke

asked the Minister of Transport if he will give the specification of roads built to urban motorway standards.

Mr. Tom Fraser

I hope to complete shortly my consideration of the standards appropriate for the layout of urban motorways. I am taking into account the special problems of congested urban areas and the need to make the best use of urban land. I hope to issue later this year, as a planning bulletin, recommended standards for the layout of urban roads including motorways.

The material specification is covered by "Specification for Road and Bridge Works" issued in 1963.
