Road Schemes

Volume 449: debated on Monday 24 July 2006

To ask the Secretary of State for Transport what the (a) original estimated cost of and (b) most recent cost estimates are for (i) Highways Agency schemes in the Targeted Programme of Improvements and (ii) all local authority schemes approved through the local transport plans. (86139)

For Highways Agency schemes, I refer the hon. Member to my answer today to the hon. Member for Brent, East (Sarah Teather).

I have placed information relating to major local authority schemes (generally those over £5 million) in the Library.

To ask the Secretary of State for Transport which road schemes were commenced by the Highways Agency in the Eastern Region in each year from 1999-2000 to 2005-06; and what the (a) original estimated cost, (b) final outturn cost, (c) original completion date and (d) actual completion date was of each project. (87432)

The following table lists all major road schemes, located in the Eastern Region, that have started works each year since 2000-01. In addition to the major projects detailed, the Highways Agency delivers many maintenance and smaller scheme improvements costing less than £5 million. The Highways Agency does not hold information for these schemes in the requested format.

1 Under construction

This information is not available for the A1 Tempsford Junction improvement as it is not a scheme within the Targeted Programme Improvements. It was, however, the only other major scheme in the Eastern Region, to have started works since 1999-2000. This scheme was completed in October 2001.
