§ Mr. John Greenway
To ask the Secretary of State for Transport when he will publish the outline plans for the dualling of the northern section of the York outer ring road; and if he will make a statement.
§ Mr. Kenneth Carlisle
I expect outline plans to be published later this year showing proposals for the improvement of the trunk road section of the York northern bypass, between the A19 of Rawcliffe and the A64 at Hopgrove. That will follow the completion of work carried out by the appointed consulting engineer on alternative solutions to the problems on that stretch of road.
