asked the Secretary of State for the Environment what is the cost of mounting the procedures so far adopted for public consultation on the Kirkhamgate to Dishforth motorway routes.
asked the Secretary of State for the Environment how many people visited the different exhibitions mounted as part of the public consultation procedure on the Kirkhamgate to Dishforth motorway routes; and how many questionnaires have been returned.
7,339 people visited the exhibitions. Up to 27th June, 1,931 questionnaires had been returned.
asked the Secretary of State for the Environment whether the total capital cost of the red route, estimated at £84 million, and of the brown route, estimated at £87 million in the consultation paper produced by his Department on the Kirkhamgate to Dish-forth motorway routes, include the sums which will have to be spent on improving the A1 and building the Oulton—Woodlesford bypass and A63–64 link.
The red and brown routes incorporate the improvement of the A1 north of Wetherby and thus the cost of those routes includes the cost of that improvement. The improvement of the A1 south of Wetherby, the Oulton—Woodlesford bypass and the A63-A64 link would not be necessary if either the red or the brown route were built.
