§ Mr. Roger King
asked the Secretary of State for Transport whether he is satisfied with the present arrangement for traffic travelling south on the M1 to exit at junction 6 in order to gain access to the M25 west.
§ Mrs. Chalker
Some congestion is occurring at the junction because of the difficulty of joining the A405 westbound, which is heavily loaded. Traffic signals have been installed on the A405 and we shall shortly be erecting warning signs on the M1. We are also considering the scope for other measures. When M25 is open, traffic wishing to travel westbound on M25 will have direct access from the M1 at junction 6A, but after a period of monitoring we shall consider whether more permanent alterations are necessary at junction 6.
