HC Deb 27 April 1982 vol 22 c255W
Mr. Snape

asked the Secretary of State for Transport whether he has any plans to announce the construction of further specific bypasses in England.

Mrs. Chalker

The recent White Paper, "Policy for Roads: England 1981" (Cmnd. 8496) announced the addition of two new bypasses to the trunk road programme and the resumption of work on six more. That programme is kept under review and I will announce any individual changes as they arise, but we have no plans for major additions at present. Planning of bypasses on non-trunk roads is a matter for the highway authorities concerned.
