HC Deb 28 July 1965 vol 717 c114W
Mr. Boston

asked the Minister of Transport what steps he proposes to take to ensure that motorways now under construction and to be constructed will not involve the high cost of maintenance and repairs of the M.1.

Mr. Tom Fraser

The standard specification now in use is considerably more exacting than that used for the first section of M.1. Motorways built to the current standards are expected to have a long, trouble-free life, but they are much more costly.
