Mr. Pawsey

To ask the Secretary of State for Transport how he plans to ensure that plans for road improvements keep pace with traffic growths up to the year 2000.

We are continuing to develop the trunk road network. We have a large new construction and improvement programme worth some £5 billion. It is regularly reviewed. Schemes are added as the need is identified.
