HC Deb 09 November 1976 vol 919 cc157-8W
Mr. Reid

asked the Secretary of State for Scotland if he will publish a timetable showing the estimated completion dates, plus respective costings, for each phase of the Stirlingshire M876 link motorway.

Mr. McElhone

The M876 link motorway will be built in one phase. It will take two-and-a-half to three years to complete and will cost about £11 million. As the method proposed for the construction and support of the embank- ment to carry the road is currently being re-examined I cannot give a date for the start of the work.
