HC Deb 18 November 1968 vol 773 cc214-5W
86 Mr. Speed

asked the Minister of Transport by how much he estimates that traffic will be reduced on the A45 between Crick and Stonebridge and the A5 between Nuneaton and Brownhills when the Midlands motorway link is open in 1971.

Mr. Marsh

Precise estimates of the effects of the motorway link on individual routes are not available, but some 50,000 vehicles a day are expected to use it and a substantial proportion of this figure would otherwise use the sections of A.45 and A.5 referred to.
