HC Deb 11 July 2000 vol 353 c504W
Mr. Bradshaw

To ask the Secretary of State for the Environment, Transport and the Regions if he will publish the latest noise tests on the A30 Exeter to Honiton Road; and if he will make a statement. [130363]

Mr. Hill

I have published today the results of the tests. Copies of the report have been placed in the Library of both House. The report shows that noise levels are somewhat higher than expected. Our 10-year Transport Strategy which will be published shortly will include further proposals for dealing with road noise. One result will be that this stretch of the A30 will be resurfaced with a lower noise surface.

Forward to
