HC Deb 15 December 1971 vol 828 cc115-6W
113. Mr. Raphael Tuck

asked the Secretary of State for the Environment what were, respectively, the cost of maintenance and repairs on the black-top M5 between Quinton and Strensham, and on the reinforced concrete M6 between Lancaster and the north end of the Preston bypass, in the first five years after con- struction and in the last five years, respectively.

Mr. Michael Heseltine

I regret that figures cannot be given for the lengths and periods requested, but costs on the concrete section of the M6 in Lancashire over the past five years are estimated at £56,000, and for black-top on the M5 in Worcestershire the corresponding figures are approximately £350,000 general maintenance and £1.6 million for major repairs.
