HC Deb 06 December 1978 vol 959 c687W
51. Mr. John H. Osborn

asked the Secretary of State for Transport, when the final link of the M18 is opened to the immediate east of the junction and bridge over the Al. what distances will be dual carriageway three-lane, what will be two-lane, and, of this, what readily convertible to three-lane.

Mr. Horam:

The information is as follows:

M18 Motorway
Section Length (miles) Standard
Ml (Thurcroft) to A1(M) (Wadworth) Dual 3-lane
A1(M) to M180 (Ings) 12 Dual 2-lane
Ml 80 to M62 (East Cowick) 6 Dual 3-lane

Of the dual two-lane section, lengths of one mile northwards from A1(M) to St. Catherines interchange and about 1,100 yards south of the M180 interchange can readily be converted to dual three-lanes because the necessary land has already been acquired.
