HC Deb 11 March 1988 vol 129 cc381-2W
Mr. Cox

To ask the Secretary of State for Transport what plans there are to build a service station on the M11 motorway; and if he will make a statement.

Mr. Peter Bottomley

The Department has outline planning clearance for a motorway service area at the M11/Al20 junction at Birch anger, near Stansted.

A public inquiry is to be held in May into the acquisition of land, local road diversions and improvements. The inquiry will also consider an appeal covering a private proposal for a service station at the same junction.
