70. Mr. Chris Smith

To ask the Secretary of State for Transport what progress is being made on the priority routes pilot project for London; and when it is now expected to be implemented.

The Department has commissioned Ove Arup and Partners to plan the introduction of the pilot scheme. We have started a comprehensive consultation exercise with the local authorities and interest groups concerned. The scheme is expected to be implemented later this year.
