To ask the Secretary of State for Transport whether he will make a statement regarding traffic congestion at junction 21 of the M1 motorway.
§ Mr. Parkinson
Works commenced on an interim scheme to reduce congestion at junction 21 of the M1 motorway on 18 June. The scheme will be completed later this year. It will provide relief to the junction until the mid-1990s.
A longer-term improvement at this junction is being investigated as part of the motorway widening and junction improvement scheme announced in the 1989 White Paper "Roads for Prosperity".
