§ Mr. Coombs
asked the Secretary of State for Transport what stage his Department has reached in the development of a national computerised database of trunk road conditions; and if he will indicate the nature of the information which will be retained.
§ Mr. Peter Bottomley
A three-year project to develop a computer database began on 1 January 1986. It relates to trunk roads including motorways.
When completed the system will hold data in relation to location, layout, construction, condition, traffic, accidents, classification and bridges.
