Mr. Roy Hughes

asked the Secretary of State for Wales how many miles of (a) motorway and (b) other new or improved trunk road were opended in each year since 1970; and how many are expected to open in 1982 and 1983.

Mr. Michael Roberts

Information on new motorways is given in the following table:

Year New mileage of motorway opened
1972 4
1977 31

No new length of motorway is due to open in Wales during the next two years.

Comparable information for trunk roads is not readily available and I shall write to the hon. Member.
