To ask the Secretary of State for Transport when he will be able to announce the result of the tender for the A46/A17 Newark relief road.

I am pleased to announce that a contract has been awarded to A. F. Budge (Contractors) Ltd. of Retford for £31·5 million. This represents a saving of £3·5 million (10 per cent.) over the original tenders received in September 1987.Work is planned to start on 18 April and take about two and a half years.
