§ 31. Mr. Fallon
asked the Secretary of State for Transport what plans he has to improve the existing roadway of the A1 between Doncaster and Scotch Corner.
§ Mr. Peter Bottomley
A new interchange at Baldersby, near Ripon, has just been completed. A new bypass at Wetherby is being built.
The national programme includes schemes to upgrade the remainder of the A1 between Bramham, near Leeds, to Scotch corner. Dual three-lane carriageways are proposed.
The section of the A1 south of Bramham to Doncaster is included in a study of traffic problems to the east of Leeds. I hope to make an announcement about this during the autumn.
