§ Mr. Macfarlane
asked the Secretary of State for Transport when he expects completion of overhead lighting for the whole of the M25.
§ Mr. Peter Bottomley
There are no plans for lighting the whole of the M25. I expect completion of lighting of junction 6 by late 1988. Lighting for junction 11, which was planned for completion by late 1988, is now being considered in conjunction with widening proposals between junctions 11 and 13.
The need for further lighting on M25 will be kept under review. The proportion of M25 lit is higher than for an average motorway (43 per cent. compared with 25 per cent.).
