To ask the Secretary of State for Transport pursuant to her answer of 15 January 2008, Official Report, column 1084W, on A21, what the latest cost estimates are for the contracts for the A21 Tonbridge to Pembury and the A21 Kippings Cross to Lamberhurst improvement schemes. (181979)

[holding answer 25 January 2008]: The interim cost estimates for these A21 schemes are:

£ million

Interim cost estimates provided by the Highways Agency have been made available to the Regional Transport Boards. The south east regional bodies have been asked to confirm their support for these schemes on the basis of these interim cost estimates.

These estimates have not been validated under the Highway Agency's new estimating procedures. Fully validated cost estimates will be provided by spring 2008.
