HC Deb 10 December 1975 vol 902 cc194-5W
Mrs. Millie Miller

asked the Secretary of State for the Environment if he will explain the difference in traffic predicted for the M11 motorway at the M11 inquiries and the predictions for the same road at the M16 (A10-A12) inquiry, where the traffic predicted on the M11 between Bishops Stortford to South Harlow, South Harlow to the M16, the M16 to Loughton and Loughton to Redbridge were approximately 50 per cent., 77 per cent., 38 per cent. and 34 per cent. of the levels predicted at the Mll inquiry.

Mr. Marks

The traffic predictions for the M11 motorway which were given at the M16 (A10-A12) public inquiry this year were amended to take account of changes in the assessment of traffic and population growth and in traffic patterns since the M11 inquiry was held in 1969.
