Volume 453: debated on Monday 27 November 2006

To ask the Secretary of State for Transport if he will take steps to dual the A1 between Edinburgh and Newcastle. (103304)

In the recent regional funding allocation exercise the north east region did not put the two proposed A1 dualling schemes between Newcastle and the Scottish Border high on their list of priorities. This means they will not now be taken forward within the 10 year funding period. Transport Scotland has no proposals for further dualling of their section of the A1 between Berwick and Edinburgh.
