HC Deb 04 November 1986 vol 103 c372W
Mr. Holt

asked the Secretary of State for Transport what plans his Department has to improve communications, other than by rail, from the north east to the Channel tunnel.

Mr. Peter Bottomley

Our aim is to ensure that the network of motorways and trunk roads is adequate to meet current and future needs. These include the need to provide access to the Channel tunnel from all parts of the country. The current construction programme includes schemes to upgrade existing north-south routes and roads to the tunnel in Kent.
