HC Deb 01 March 1978 vol 945 c221W
40. Mr. Brotherton

asked the Secretary of State for Transport what was the original estimated cost of the Humber Bridge at mid-1977 prices, in comparison with the latest figure of £60 million.

Mr. William Rodgers

The estimated cost of the bridge when work was authorised to start in February 1973 was just over £28 million. At mid-1977 prices, that cost would have been about £56 million.
