HL Deb 17 October 2000 vol 617 c84WA
Lord Peyton of Yeovil

asked Her Majesty's Government:

On how many days in each of the last three years all lanes on Westminster Bridge and the roads immediately leading to it have been open to normal traffic; and when they expect them to be. [HL4097]

The Parliamentary Under-Secretary of State, Department of the Environment, Transport and the Regions (Lord Whitty)

Information about when all these lanes have been open during the last three years is not available. I understand that all lanes on the bridge and the adjacent roads should be open to normal traffic by Christmas.

The works on the north side of the bridge on behalf of the Parliamentary Works Directorate should be completed by the end of October or the beginning of November and the works to the south of the bridge should be completed by Christmas.
