Lorries: A1

Volume 465: debated on Wednesday 24 October 2007

To ask the Secretary of State for Transport if she will assess the merits of restricting heavy goods vehicles to the inside lane of the A1 dual carriageway between Grantham and Newark. (159322)

There are no proposals to carry out such an assessment, as this section of the A1 is relatively flat and the Highways Agency is not aware of any particular problems caused by heavy goods vehicles using the outside lane on this stretch of the A1. However, the ongoing replacement of the existing roundabout at Gonerby Moor, with a split level junction, will remove an identified source of congestion on the A1. This work should be completed in late spring/early summer next year.
