§ Mrs. Chalker
In the decision letter of 17 November 1983 conveying their provisional view that the bypass should be built, my right hon. Friends the Secretaries of State for the Environment and for Transport afforded a further opportunity for comment because of new traffic information that could conceivably affect the case for the bypass. A number of comments have been received and these are being considered. Without prejudice to this consideration, supplementary draft orders have been published to lower the level of the bypass as proposed by the Better Bromham Bypass campaign. Subject to the outcome of our consideration of the comments, and the outcome of the remaining statutory procedures, construction could start next summer.
