HC Deb 24 April 1990 vol 171 c192W
Mr. Haselhurst

To ask the Secretary of State for Transport which sites were given detailed evaluation for the establishment of a services area on the M11 motorway before Birchanger was nominated.

Mr. Atkins

In addition to Birchanger, 15 potential service area sites were examined between junctions 6 and 9 of the M11, at:

  • Audley End Estate
  • Wendens Ambo
  • Whiteditch Farm
  • Whiteditch
  • Between Elsenham Station and Ugley Green (six sites)
  • Parsonage Farm
  • Sheering
  • Moor Hall
  • Junction 7
  • North Weald Airfield

These sites were first considered at various dates between 1966 and 1981 when the planning application was made. In 1988 each site was revisited by consultants to check that earlier assessments of them remained valid.
