HC Deb 16 June 1992 vol 209 cc485-6W
Mr. Hague

To ask the Secretary of State for Transport what is the average cost of providing one kilometre of motorway in a rural area, broken down into(a) cost of land purchase and (b) cost of construction.

Mr. Kenneth Carlisle

[holding answer 11 June 1992]: Construction costs of roads vary substantially depending on factors such as location and the need for structures. In view of that, the Department does not prepare information on the average cost of road construction per kilometre.

"Trunk Roads: England into the 1990s" contains full details, including estimated works costs, of all schemes in the trunk road programme.
