HC Deb 23 February 1978 vol 944 c766W
Mr. Skeet

asked the Secretary of State for Transport, on the basis that the cost of renewing one mile of single track railway costs £92,500 at July 1977 prices, what are the comparative figures for one mile of roadway with a tarmacadam surface and of a dual carriageway similarly surfaced.

Mr. William Rodgers

The estimated cost of renewing a mile of single carriageway road varies between £65,000 and £140,000 at 1977 prices, depending on the strength provided, and is approximately twice the latter figure for dual carriageways.
