HC Deb 12 May 1993 vol 224 c461W
Mrs. Lait

To ask the Secretary of State for Transport when he expects to announce the way forward for the improvements to the A21 between Flimwell and Robertsbridge; and if he will make a statement.

Mr. Kenneth Carlisle

I am pleased to announce that the three programmed schemes in preparation along this stretch of A21 in East Sussex are being replaced by one comprehensive improvement between Flimwell and Robertsbridge. The improvement will include the Salehurst roundabout at Robertsbridge and the section of road between Flimwell and Hurst Green.

This announcement will be welcomed by the many local people and local authorities which made representations to me for a more strategic approach to the improvement of this length of the A21.
