HC Deb 05 July 1990 vol 175 cc661-2W
Mr. Speed

To ask the Secretary of State for Transport what design work is taking place on the Lacton interchange on the M20 in Ashford to improve the junction's traffic flow and capacity.

Mr. Atkins

Kent county council, as highway authority for the junction roundabout, is undertaking preliminary design of possible options to improve the capacity and traffic flow at M20 junction 10. Subject to my Department being satisfied about the effects to traffic on the motorway and its connecting roads, the choice of any scheme to be promoted rests with the county council.
