§ 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.
