HC Deb 10 June 1985 vol 80 c374W
38. Mr. David Atkinson

asked the Secretary of State for Transport when he expects the southern extension of the M3 motorway to be completed.

Mrs. Chalker

I opened the 10-mile extension of the M3 from Popham to Easton lane, Winchester on 22 May. Subject to the outcome of a public inquiry for the Bar End to Bassett section due to start on 19 June, we hope to be able to complete the motorway by 1989.
