HC Deb 09 July 1990 vol 176 cc89-90W
44. Sir Trevor Skeet

To ask the Secretary of State for Transport how many bypasses will be started or completed this year.

Mr. Atkins

Some 30 bypass schemes with a works cost of over £500 million are programmed to start or be completed this year, totalling over 110 miles of new road. Whether classified as bypasses or not, nearly all new road schemes bring relief to local communities from intrusive through traffic.
