§ Mr. Wingfield Digby
asked the Minister of Transport when the dualling of the A30 will be completed.
Mr. Bob Brown
We know of no plan to provide dual carriageways throughout A30. A motorway is planned to supersede the present trunk road between London and Basingstoke before the mid-70's. The A30 westwards, until it reaches Devon, is a principal road and the highway authorities responsible have, I believe, no firm plans for comprehensive improvement to dual carriageway standards. We plan to improve the remaining trunk road lengths in Devon and Cornwall as priorities and funds allow.
