§ Mr. Gow
asked the Secretary of State for the Environment what is the total length of motorway at present in use; how many miles of those motorways have a central crash barrier; and what is the policy of the Government in regard to the installation of central crash barriers on motorways where they do not exist at present.
§ Mr. Carmichael
There are 1,065 miles of trunk road motorway in England; about 930 now have a central barrier.
Central barriers are now being provided on all busy motorways; provision on less busy motorways will be kept under review.
