A1: Gateshead

Volume 463: debated on Tuesday 17 July 2007

To ask the Secretary of State for Transport what discussions she has had with local authorities in Tyne and Wear on the upgrading of the A1 through Gateshead and Newcastle. (149854)

I have not yet had an opportunity to meet with the Tyne and Wear local authorities. But I do know that previous Ministers met with them, and that officials of the Highways Agency meet with both officials and members of Gateshead and Newcastle Councils to keep them informed of progress on this scheme.
