HC Deb 05 December 1983 vol 50 c40W
46. Mr. David Atkinson

asked the Secretary of State for Transport when he expects the link between the M3 and the M27 to be brought up to motorway standard.

Mrs. Chalker

Subject to completion of the statutory procedures, I hope that it will be possible to start construction of the further extension of the M3 southwards from Bar End, Winchester in 1986 for completion in 1988.
