HC Deb 28 July 2000 vol 354 c927W
Dr. Harris

To ask the Secretary of State for the Environment, Transport and the Regions when the A34 north of Oxford will be resurfaced under the initiative announced recently in respect of concrete roads; and what difference the new resources announced in the 10-year plan have made to the forecast timescale.

Mr. Hill

Our 10-year strategy for transport, "Transport 2010—The Ten Year Plan", has been published and sets out proposals for dealing with road noise, including the provision of quieter surfaces on over 60 per cent. of the network, including all concrete surfaces.

I have asked the Highways Agency to draw up a programme for all such trunk roads for agreement. The A34 north of Oxford will be included in this programme.
