Volume 486: debated on Tuesday 20 January 2009

To ask the Secretary of State for Transport how much has been spent by (a) the Highways Agency and (b) Gloucestershire county council on the B4008 since the opening of junction 12 on the M5. (248239)

The Highways Agency has not spent any money on the B4008 because, as part of the local highway network, it is the responsibility of Gloucestershire county council.

We have been advised by Gloucestershire county council that, since Junction 12 of the M5 became an all-movements junction in 2003, the council have spent £171,000 on surfacing at Standish in 2004-05 and £93,000 on Standish Railway Bridge in 2007-08.
