§ 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.
