§ Dr. Edmund Marshall
asked the Minister of Transport why the northbound carriageway of the Thorne bypass section of the M18 motorway has 273W recently been reduced from three lanes to two.
§ Mr. Kenneth Clarke
The northbound carriageway of the M18 motorway near Thorne has been reduced from three lanes to two lanes because deterioration of the running surface has begun to take place. Traffic is using the remaining two lanes and no delays are occurring.
