HC Deb 28 March 1979 vol 965 cc212-3W
74. Mr. David Price

asked the Secretary of State for Transport, in view of the current winter's bad weather, when he expects work to start on the missing section of the M27 motorway between Hedge End and Chilworth; and what is the current expected date for completion.

Mr. Horam

Subject to the satisfactory completion of the remaining statutory procedures and the availability of funds, we expect to let contracts for advance bridgeworks later this year, and for the main works in 1980 with completion in 1982.
