§ Mr. Hawkins
To ask the Secretary of State for the Environment, Transport and the Regions when the M3 will(a) be resurfaced and (b) have noise reduction measures provided beside it, between junctions 2 and 4a. 
§ Mr. Hill
Our 10-year strategy for transport, "Transport 2010—The 10 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. Junctions 2 to 4a will be included in the programme.
