§ Sir Michael Marshall
To ask the Secretary of State for Transport whether, following the ministerial visit on 31 January and the meeting between his Department's Dorking office and representatives of West Sussex county council on 5 July, he will indicate the prospects for adopting the modified orange route for the A27 Arundel bypass which would move the alignment of this route in a more southerly direction.
§ Mr. Atkins
Further investigation of the alternative modified orange route for the proposed Arundel bypass is 23W needed before my right hon. Friend decides whether to amend the preferred route. A further announcement will be made as soon as possible.
