§ Mr. Edwin Wainwright
asked the Minister of Transport if she will now state the length in miles of the contracts that have now been accepted for the Yorkshire-Lancashire motorway, M62, and the estimated date when the final contract or contracts will have been allocated.
§ Mr. Swingler
Contracts have been accepted over approximately eight miles of the motorway, consisting of the major earthworks across the Pennines and advance bridges and earthworks in Lancashire. The final contract for the motorway will be on the section between Lofthouse and the A1 at Ferrybridge, to give completion by the early 1970's.
