§ Mr. Kilroy-Silk
asked the Secretary of State for the Environment when the proposed M59 Preston—Liverpool motorway is to be constructed; what is the line of route; and where the proposed junction with the A50 is to be.
§ Mr. Carmichael
The Liverpool—Preston A59 improvement scheme is at an early stage of planning and investigations are proceeding into all practicable solutions. It is too early to announce details of routes under consideration or to give a date for a start of works.
