§ Mr. Tom Arnold
To ask the Secretary of State for Transport if he will give further details of the A6 Windlehurst road scheme which he is putting out to tender.
§ Mr. Atkins
This scheme, scheduled for completion this summer, will improve road safety and ease traffic flow, by widening the A6 on the south side of its junction with Windlehurst road.
The provision of a ghost island, and wider turning circle at the junction, will assist vehicles turning right into and out of Windlehurst road and reduce traffic delays for through traffic on the trunk road. The existing pelican crossing will also be improved.
