asked the Minister of Transport and Civil Aviation how long it will take to build the shields required for the Linthouse-Whiteinch Tunnel.
I cannot yet say whether new shields will be needed for this tunnel. The time that it would take to build a shield is now estimated at about 15 months, but this is not likely to delay the commencement of the work.
asked the Minister of Transport and Civil Aviation the cost of constructing the shields for the Linthouse-Whiteinch Tunnel.
The cost of a shield would be about £80,000.
