30. Mr. J. E. B. Hill
asked the Minister of Transport, in view of Her Majesty's Government's plans for the expansion of Ipswich, what are his plans for the improvement of the A.12, between London and Ipswich, including the approach from the A.12 to central London; and whether he will now expedite measures to make the whole of this route dual-carriageway.
§ Mr. Tom Fraser
The A.12 is being comprehensively modernised by the construction of dual carriageways between the "Green Man", Leytonstone, and Woodbridge, East Suffolk. The proposed Eastern Avenue extension will connect the A.12 with an improved east-west route across central London. Some of the work has been completed or is in progress and some is programmed for the next few years. Other works will be carried out as resources allow.
