§ Mr. Redwood
To ask the Secretary of State for Transport what the annual capital sums are which are planned within the budget for transport over 10 years announced in the Thames Valley multi-modal study.
§ Mr. Spellar
The capital measures recommended by the Thames Valley Multi-Modal Study have been estimated by the consultants to cost £1.1 billion over an implementation period to 2018. Subject to the Government's response to the recommendations, the annual capital costs will depend on decisions about the phasing and construction of recommended schemes.
