Motorway Widening Scheme

Volume 489: debated on Tuesday 10 March 2009

10. To ask the Secretary of State for Transport which sections of the M4 and M5 in the Bristol area he plans to include in the hard shoulder motorway widening scheme. (261713)

We plan to implement hard shoulder running on the M4 between junctions 19 and 20 and on the M5 between junctions 15 and 17. The scheme will address congestion and unreliable journey times on this important section of the motorway network near Bristol.
