§ Mr. Lamborn
asked the Minister of Transport if the two new docklands road links, between South Woodford and Barking, and South Woodford and Hackney Wick, will still be given priority as industrial routes, despite the cuts in the road investment programme.
§ Mr. Kenneth Clarke
We are reviewing the timing of schemes in the trunk road programme as part of our commitment to contain public expenditure. Until this review is completed I am unable to say what effect it will have on the South Woodford to Barking relief road and the Hackney to South Woodford link. We shall be publishing our revised proposals in a White Paper in the New Year.
