HC Deb 22 January 1975 vol 884 cc343-4W
27. Mr. Crawford

asked the Secretary of State for Scotland what is the cost of constructing hard shoulders on existing sections of the M90; and what is the comparable cost of such construction being carried out as an integral part of the motorway when it was being constructed.

Mr. Millan

The cost of providing hard shoulders on the existing 17 miles of the M90 is expected to be about £2 million. At 1967 prices it would have cost some £500,000 to include this work in the initial contracts.
