HC Deb 11 November 1968 vol 773 c16W
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.
