§ Mr. Jamieson
I have asked the Chief Executive of the Highways Agency, Tim Matthews, to write to the hon. Member.1065W
Letter from Tim Matthews to Mr. Gregory Barker dated 31 January 2003:I have been asked by the Transport Minister, David Jamieson, to reply to your recent Parliamentary Questions asking him to list the road proposals which will affect sites of special interest, Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONBs) and National Parks, and which Sites of Special Scientific Interest (SSSIs) and AONBs are affected by trunk road and motorway schemes for which preferred routes have been announced.Please see the attached table giving this information in respect of trunk roads and motorways in England. Roads in Wales are the responsibility of the National Assembly for Wales. We have interpreted sites of special interest to be the same as SSSI.I am unable to comment on the effect of any potential schemes yet to come out of the Multi Modal or other studies that are currently in progress.
