§ Mr. Butler
To ask the Secretary of State for Transport whether he has any plans to improve the speed of traffic flow along the M1 during carriageway repairs.
§ Mr. Peter Bottomley
We are always looking for ways of improving traffic flow, consistent with safety of road users and the work force at roadwork sites. We aim to minimise delays by careful programming, improved traffic management and greater use of lane rental contracts which give an incentive for early completion.
