§ 21. Mr. Tredinnick
To ask the Secretary of State for Transport whether he has plans to upgrade the A5 from Hinckley—M69/A5 junction—to Nuneaton—A47/A5.
§ Mr. Chope
No schemes are currently included in the roads programme to upgrade this section of the A5.
A scheme identification study has been carried out to examine the length of the A5 betwen Old Sleaford, Bucks and the M42, to identify viable options for improving this route. The study report is now being evaluated. Any suitable schemes arising from this will be considered for inclusion in the roads programme when it is next reviewed.
