§ 21. Sir J. Langford-Holt
asked the Minister of Transport why only 97 miles of motorway were under construction on 31st March, 1968, compared with 118 miles in 1966.
§ Mr. Marsh
The total mileage under construction at any one time fluctuates considerably according to the actual starting and finishing dates of individual contracts. Starts are planned to increase rapidly during the rest of the year so that the mileage under construction by the end of December should be about double the March mileage.
