Volume 478: debated on Thursday 26 June 2008

To ask the Secretary of State for Transport when she expects the Highways Agency to implement its proposals for widening the M1 between junctions 10 and 13; and what estimate she has made of the cost of the scheme. (209287)

We announced in March that we had asked the Highways Agency to investigate alternative options for adding capacity to the M1 between junctions 10 and 13, including hard shoulder running. This work is under way and due to be complete by the autumn. The timetable for implementing improvements will depend on the option selected. Cost estimates are subject to further work and validation.
