Lorries: M18

Volume 465: debated on Tuesday 23 October 2007

To ask the Secretary of State for Transport if she will ban heavy goods vehicles from using the third lane of the M18 motorway north of junction 6 in both directions whilst the current roadworks are taking place and the inside lane is not in use. (159658)

The Highways Agency has no plans to ban heavy goods vehicles (HGVs) from using the third lane of the M18 motorway north of Junction 6 in both directions while the current road works are taking place. There is a 50 mph limit throughout the works and therefore HGVs should not cause a delay to other vehicles.
