§ Mr. Kenneth Carlisle
There are a number of schemes in the national roads programme to improve transpennine road links. These include widening M62 between junctions 18 and 24; provision of a new Ml/M62 link; improvements to A628/A616 from M67 to Stocksbridge and improvements to A66.
I will be better placed to make a statement regarding transpennine roads strategy once the public consultation period has finished on 5 March and all responses have been considered. At this stage the Government are not committed to any of the strategies in the consultants' report.
