HC Deb 27 October 1982 vol 29 cc455-6W
Sir David Price

asked the Secretary of State for Transport if he will list in the Official Reportall the bypass schemes which he has authorised in the last 12 months, giving the estimated cost and the completion date in each case.

Mrs. Chalker:

I have authorised the start or resumption of preparation work on the trunk road bypass schemes attached since 27 October 1981. At this early stage it is not usually possible to give any estimate of cost, which will depend to a large extent on the route and nature of the preferred scheme, nor of any precise timing.

In addition I have provided funds in the transport supplementary grant settlement for 1982–83, so that county councils may plan to start a further 35 bypasses on local roads.
