§ Sir Eldon Griffiths
To ask the Secretary of State for Transport if he will publish in theOfficial Report a table showing the approximate number of cars, heavy goods vehicles and passenger service vehicles that he estimates have used the A45 highway between Cambridge and the Haven ports of Ipswich and Felixstowe during each of the past 10 years; and how many he expects to use this stretch of road over the next 10 years.
§ Mr. Atkins
The estimated annual average daily flow of vehicles on the A45 between Cambridge and the Haven ports of Ipswich and Felixstowe in 1988 is as follows:
Number Heavy goods vehicles 4,500 Cars and taxis 14,500 Buses and coaches 100
Estimates of traffic levels on individual roads are made annually but the margins of error are too great to allow growth trends to be deduced.
No specific forecasts have been made for growth of traffic on this road. It is forecast by my Department that traffic in Great Britain will grow by between 20 and 35 per cent. betweeen 1990 and 2000.
