HC Deb 25 June 1980 vol 987 cc225-6W
48. Mr. Austin Mitchell

asked the Minister of Transport by what date he expects the completion of the Brigg to Grimsby section of the new road.

Mr. Kenneth Clarke

The new road will be constructed in two parts. The section between Brigg bypass and Ulceby is included in the main programme for 1980 and 1.981 and that between Ulceby and Grimsby in 1982 or 1983. Subject to the satisfactory completion of the remaining statutory procedures and the availability of funds, both sections should be open to traffic by 1985.
