§ Mr. McCrindle
To ask the Secretary of State for Transport if he will make it his policy to alter the A12 in the vicinity of Brentwood to a six-lane highway; and if he will make a statement.
§ Mr. Atkins
We have no plans to widen the existing A12 near Brentwood. The proposed new motorway between the M25 and Chelmsford provides the best solution to relieving not only that section of A12 but the M25, in terms of both economics and advantages to road users.
