Road Building

Volume 450: debated on Monday 16 October 2006

To ask the Secretary of State for Transport what length of roads has been built in each year since 1979. (94276)

The Secretary of State has responsibility for motorways and trunk roads in England only. I refer the hon. Member to my answers of 19 December 2005, Official Report, column 2321W and 27 June 2005, Official Report, columns 1263-66W, for the information between 1997 and 2005. The total length of schemes completed on the trunk road network in England between 19 December 2005 and 12 October 2006 was 29.6 miles.

Information for other roads is not available, except at a disproportionate cost.
