asked the Secretary of State for Transport what was the reason for the coning off of one of the two lanes on the southbound carriageway of the A1(M) south of Doncaster on Sunday 17 July, resulting in delays to traffic using the motorway.
§ Mrs. Chalker
Safety barriers are being erected in the central reservation, requiring the closure of the offside lanes in 4km stages. Although entitled to work on Sundays, in the event the contractor stopped work at 12.30 pm on Saturday and resumed at 8 am on Monday 18 July.
Further inquiries are being made.
