HC Deb 11 July 1983 vol 45 c252W
35. Mr. Hal Miller

asked the Secretary of State for Transport how much additional money has been made available for the construction of more bypasses following the decision on the increased laden weight of lorries.

Mrs. Chalker

On 12 May 1983 my right hon. Friend announced the addition of 15 bypasses worth £116 million to the active trunk road programme. This brought the total number of bypasses in planning or construction to 160. [Vol. 42, c.439–40.]
