§ Mr. Crouch
asked the Secretary of State for Transport what plans he has for the enlargement of the M2 into a three-lane motorway.516W
§ Mrs. Chalker
We are at present undertaking a study of the possible need for more capacity on the M2 between junctions 1 and 3. Subject to the outcome, the existing M2 and the M20 with the new section from Maidstone to Ashford should provide for traffic between London, the M25 and the Kent coast beyond the end of the century.
