Volume 454: debated on Tuesday 5 December 2006

To ask the Secretary of State for Transport what plans he has to support the dualling of the A15 east trunk road between Glinton and Gunthorpe, east of Peterborough; and if he will make a statement. (107667)

The A15 between Glinton and Gunthorpe is not a trunk road and so is the responsibility of Peterborough city council as local highway authority. Their second Local Transport Plan, published in March 2006, currently being assessed by the Department for Transport, proposes incremental improvements beginning with dualling the section between junction 21 (Gunthorpe) and junction 20 (Werrington). The Department for Communities and Local Government announced approval on 3 August 2006 of Growth Area Funds to the sum of £5.85 million for this work. The target date for completion is March 2008.
