HC Deb 12 May 1982 vol 23 c284W
35. Mr. Conlan

asked the Secretary of State for Transport how many miles of non-motorway trunk roads will be resurfaced in 1982; and how this compares with the figure for 1978.

Mrs. Chalker

In 1982–83 we are planning to spend £36 million repairing the surface of non-motorway trunk roads. Because of the variation both in the number of lanes to be resurfaced and in methods of repairs, a count of the mileage would have little meaning and no such figure is available.
