asked the Secretary of State for Northern Ireland how many miles of motorway in Northern Ireland 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; and in how many cases the lighting was installed separately after construction of the motorway itself; and what mileage was involved.

There are 6 miles of motorway in Northern Ireland currently lit: 1 mile on the M1, 3¼ miles on the M2 and 1¾ miles on the M5. It is not planned to light further stretches of motorway. In the case of those miles of motorway lit, 4¾ miles were lit at the time of construction, and in three cases a total of 1¼ miles of motorway were lit after construction.
