Letter from Lawrie Haynes to Mr. Andrew Mackinlay dated 26 March 1996:As you know John Watts, the Minister for Railways and Roads, has asked me to reply to your recent Questions about the proposed widening of the M25 between Junctions 12 and 15 and the proposed public exhibitions.We hope to publish an Environmental Statement on this scheme shortly. We shall provide details of the dates of the public exhibitions at that time, but expect them to be held over a number of days at a number of local venues.We would expect to provide full advance publicity about the exhibitions, which would include a press notice, a public notice and advertisements in local papers, and leaflets explaining the proposals will be distributed to local residents. We will also be writing to all those who commented on the previous Link Road proposals.Ministers will make an announcement when the proposals are published.
