HC Deb 23 April 1990 vol 171 c56W
Mr. Madel

To ask the Secretary of State for Transport when the current repairs to the M 1 between junctions 8 and 9 are complete what proportion of that section will have been widened to four lanes; and if he will make a statement.

Mr. Atkins

The major maintenance works in progress consist of essential resurfacing and drainage renewal. No widening is being carried out at this stage.

Hertfordshire county council has recently been commissioned to carry out design work in widening of the M1 between junctions 6A and 10. Possible options will be considered carefully. The public will then be consulted and a preferred option announced in due course.
