HC Deb 03 November 1993 vol 231 c233W
Mr. Rowe

To ask the Secretary of State for Transport what is the estimated land take needed for,(a) the roads programme and (b) the railway programme for 1993–94, 1994–95 and 1995–96.

Mr. Key

Meaningful estimates cannot be made. The land take needed for roads and railways depends on the progress and the design of individual schemes.

In particular, with the channel tunnel rail link, the land take needed will depend upon the outcome of the detailed consultation currently taking place, as well as the timing of legislation to authorise the new line.
