HC Deb 29 November 1993 vol 233 c349W
Mr. Pike

To ask the Secretary of State for Transport what plans there are for major motorway works in 1994–95 and for lighting schemes and additional service areas.

Mr. Key

There will be an announcement about major motorway works in the new year. It is expected that about 16 miles of motorway will be equipped with lighting for the first time during 1994–95. Following a change of policy in August 1992, proposals for new motorway service areas —MSAs—are now a matter for the private sector. Nevertheless, three MSAs proposed by the Department before the change in policy are expected to open during 1994–95: they are at Birchanger on the M11 and Barn Hill and Cherwell Valley on the M40.
