§ Mr. Harrison
asked the Secretary of State for Transport if he will ensure that sign-posting to a new motorway is in position when the new road is opened.
§ Mr. Ridley
We aim to ensure that signing to a new motorway is provided when it is opened. Signing on the local authority routes which may be involved is, however, outside our direct control. When a motorway is opened in sections full signing may need to await completion of the route, but temporary signing is provided where appropriate.
