asked the Secretary of State for Transport what is the latest estimated cost in relation to proposed improvements on the A13 trunk road of (a) the improvement to the existing line of the route through Rainham, including the cost of all flyovers and (b) the alternative "Marshes" route.
§ Mrs. Chalker
Design of the improvements on the A13 between the M25 and Thames Avenue has not yet reached the stage of preparation of revised estimates. The latest estimates for this length of road are, therefore, those of November 1980:274W
- (a) including the improvement of the existing route through Rainham and the cost of all flyovers £31.4 million
- (b) including the alternative "Marshes" route £50.8 million.
