HC Deb 22 July 1996 vol 282 c17W
Mr. Vaz

To ask the Secretary of State for Transport if additional information required by his Department on induced traffic for the Leicester A46/A47 link road will cover the wider area set out in the Standing Advisory Committee on Trunk Road Assessment report. [38918]

Mr. Watts

The additional information requested by my officials on the A46/A47 link road relates specifically to the issue of induced traffic as highlighted in the SACTRA report. My Department has issued guidance to all local highway authorities on how best the effects of induced traffic may be assessed. The information, to be provided, by Leicestershire county council, should be in line with that advice.
