asked the Secretary of State for Transport how many separate roadworks there are on the A1(M) from 15 miles south of Wetherby to Darlington and from the junction of the A19 with the A1 near Thirsk to five miles north of Middlesbrough; in each case, what is the area of road with less than full two-lanes either way unrestricted traffic; when each set of works began; what is the likely cost of each; when each was due under contract to be completed; and when each is likely to be completed.

With roadworks, the position changes daily. The position on 30 April 1987 was as follows:


Length of lane closure

Start date


Contract completion date

Thirsk Bypass to Richmond Farm1½ miles nearside lane30 April 1978 for 1 day

It is not possible to forecast precise completion dates. Some of these schemes are likely to be completed in advance of the contract date.
