HC Deb 16 January 1979 vol 960 c696W
Mr. David Mitchell

asked the Secretary of State for Transport what is the timetable for work on the proposed bypass of Kingsclere on the A339 trunk road.

Mr. Horam

It is too early to state a precise timetable. A line (variation) order and a side roads order were published in draft last month and the associated draft compulsory purchase order will follow in the early spring. Progress depends on public reaction to these orders. I hope that it will be possible to start work in 1980; construction will take about two years.
