HC Deb 31 March 1983 vol 40 cc237-8W
Dr. Edmund Marshall

asked the Secretary of State for Transport what is the present position in respect of the construction of a bypass at Market Weighton on the A1079 trunk road.

Mrs. Chalker

The scheme is listed in the White Paper "Policy for Roads: England 1981" as in the main programme 1986 onwards. Investigations are proceeding to establish whether there is a choice of viable routes. I date for (i) the Great Northern main line to Leeds and Newcastle (ii) the Tonbridge to Hastings line (iii) the Cambridge to Royston line (iv) the Cambridge to Bishops Stortford line (v) the Paisley to Ayr line and (vi) the Colchester to Harwich and Colchester to Norwich lines.

Mr. Eyre

I understand that the information on costs is as shown in the following table. Information on passenger numbers is not available to me.

have just discussed the issue with Humberside county council, and I am hopeful that further construction work lies ahead.
