asked the Secretary of State for Wales how many miles of motorway in Wales are currently lit; if he will break them down by motorway; how many miles of motorway are planned to be lit; of those miles lit, in the case of how many the lights were installed during construction of the motorway itself; in how many cases the lighting was installed separately after construction of the motorway itself; and what mileage was involved.

The M4 is the only motorway in Wales. Eighteen miles are lit. Fifteen miles had lighting installed during construction and a further three miles had lighting installed as part of a subsequent road widening. The extent of motorway lighting is being kept under review, but there are no plans at present for further lighting.
