To ask the Secretary of State for Transport if he will make a statement about proposals for widening the M2 motorway; and when consideration will be given to making it three lanes each way as far as Faversham.

The scheme to widen the M2 between junctions 1 and 3 was extended earlier this year to include the section between junctions 3 and 4. In the light of this the programme for the whole scheme is being reviewed. Meanwhile my Department's consultants are continuing to investigate possible options for carrying out proposed widening.My Department has no plans at present to widen the M2 beyond junction 4 to Faversham but the need to do so will be kept under review.
