HC Deb 17 July 2003 vol 409 c624W
Miss McIntosh

To ask the Secretary of State for Transport pursuant to his statement of 9 July, on investment in transport, what projects he intends to announce for(a) North Yorkshire and (b) Vale of York. [125656]

Mr. Jamieson

The Secretary of State's statement of 9 July concerned the Government's response to a number of multi-modal studies, none of which covered North Yorkshire and the Vale of York. However, new projects for the upgrading of the A1 between Dishforth and Barton and for the dualling of the A66 in North Yorkshire were announced on 25 June 2002 and 22 August 2002 respectively in response to safety studies undertaken on these routes.
