HC Deb 30 November 1972 vol 847 c210W
Mr. Neave

asked the Secretary of State for the Environment what instructions he has issued to road construction units about the choice of railheads for the carriage of road stone for motorway construction.

Mr. Speed

In consultation with the local highway planning authority concerned road construction units have been instructed to examine all existing railheads which might be used in any particular scheme and to warn contractors of any such railheads that may be unsuitable for the carriage of road stone because of their associated road haulage routes.
