asked the Secretary of State for Scotland which roads have been detrunked in each of the past 10 years; how many miles in each case; whether each road detrunked was replaced by an alternative road which was trunked; and, in the case of each road, what major improvements had been identified but not carried out at the time of detrunking.

Comprehensive information is not readily available since detrunking is associated with a large number of new road, or road improvement, schemes. Detrunked lengths are normally replaced by an alternative road and the carrying out of major improvements is not a precondition of detrunking.
