HC Deb 08 May 2002 vol 385 c218W
Mr. Greg Knight

To ask the Secretary of State for Transport, Local Government and the Regions for what reason he is allowing the rebuilding of the motorway services at junction 15A of the M 1 motorway on a site which would not permit motorway widening without its subsequent demolition. [54826]

Mr. Jamieson

We have no present plans to widen the M1 at this point. In any case, while the proposed alterations to the service area do involve the replacement of some existing buildings with new ones, we are satisfied that the changes are likely if anything to make future widening proposals more, rather than less, straightforward to implement.
