Mr. Matthew Taylor

To ask the Secretary of State for Transport if he will make it his policy to undertake comparative studies of representative towns and villages before and after the completion of bypasses, in order to improve understanding of their environmental and other effects.

Mr. Watts

For all its road improvements, including bypasses, the Department of Transport compares forecast traffic with the actual traffic after opening.
