§ Mr. Crouch
asked the Secretary of State for Transport when he expects the M20 to Dover will be completed.
§ Mrs. Chalker
I hope to start construction of the Maidstone-Ashford section of the M20 in 1987. This should enable us to complete the motorway to Folkestone in 1989.
There is a scheme for the improvement of the A20 between Folkestone and Dover in our main programme for April 1987 onwards. The date of completion will depend on the progress of the statutory procedures.
