Bus Lanes: Bedfordshire

Volume 488: debated on Friday 27 February 2009

To ask the Secretary of State for Transport whether he has committed funds to the Luton to Dunstable busway for 2010-11. (259403)

In September 2008 we granted conditional approval to a maximum Government contribution of £78.39 million towards the cost of this scheme.

Full approval will not be given until final prices have been fixed following a tendering exercise by Luton borough council. We understand that the council will be seeking full approval towards the end of 2009.
