§ 57. Sir G. de Freitas
asked the Secretary of State for the Environment whether he is aware of the increasing congestion on the M6 and M1 motorways; and what plans he now has for the development of trunk roads between the East Midlands and the East Anglian ports which will take account of the growing industrial activity in the Corby and Kettering area of Northamptonshire.
§ Mr. Graham Page
The M6 and M1 motorways will be relieved by improvements elsewhere in the national network. The new route from the M1 near Northampton to the A1, will, with the comprehensive improvement of the A45 east of Cambridge, provide a high-standard link between the East Midlands and the East Anglian ports.
