asked the Secretary of State for Transport if any firm contracts have been entered into in connection with the construction of the A13–A12 section of the M25 motorway.

Firm contracts have been entered into on two sites for advance works in connection with this section of the M25. At Nags Head Lane an underline railway bridge is being constructed in three stages. The first stage was completed in late 1976, and the contract for the second stage was let in early December. The other contract involved the strengthening of a culvert at Tunnel Interchange. Work started in November 1976 and was completed in March 1977. Diversions of services along the route are also being carried out by statutory undertakers, either with direct labour or by contract. The main roadworks are programmed to start in the autumn of 1977, subject to the satisfactory completion of the remaining statutory procedures and the availability of funds.
