HC Deb 15 July 1970 vol 803 c203W
32 and 33. Mr. Crouch

asked the Minister of Transport (1) what plans he has for the completion of the M2 motorway from Brenley Corner to Dover;

(2) if he will revise the present plans for the development of the A2 road from Brenley Corner to Dover to include a by-pass of Canterbury and to speed-up the whole programme.

Mr. Michael Heseltine

We have no plans at present to extend the M2 from Brenley Corner, but the A2 route is being progressively improved to dual-carriageway standard as quickly as possible. A Canterbury bypass is unlikely to be justified before the late 1970s.
