HC Deb 28 March 1979 vol 965 c208W
56. Mr. Stan Crowther

asked the Secretary of State for Transport what instructions he gives to motorway repair contractors concerning the closure and reopening of lanes before and after repair work.

Mr. Horam

Requirements vary according to circumstances and are normally set out in the contract documents regulating such works.

The aim is to balance the convenience of road users against the need to carry out the work safely and expeditiously.
