HC Deb 26 July 1965 vol 717 c31W
Mr. Dance

asked the Minister of Transport if he will make a statement on his plans for speeding up the improvement of connections between the M.1, M.5, and M.6, to reduce the serious congestion which exists at the present time.

Mr. Tom Fraser

These links are expected to be open to traffic by 1970–71 on present plans, with the link between M.5 and M.6 being completed before the end of 1969. All possible steps will be taken to finish these connections quickly but the practical problems involved in land acquisition and construction make it unlikely that these dates can be much advanced.
