A46: Nottinghamshire

Volume 475: debated on Tuesday 29 April 2008

To ask the Secretary of State for Transport if she will amend the proposals for the dualling of the A46 between Newark and Widmerpool to keep the project within budget. (201266)

The current proposals for dualling the A46 between Newark and Widmerpool forms one of the highway schemes which is planned to be funded from the East Midlands' Regional Funding Allocation for major transport schemes. The region is considering how to accommodate the A46 scheme within its recommended programme of schemes in the light of emerging cost pressures. We will carefully consider the region's advice both for the programme as a whole and in relation to the A46 scheme.
