M18: Repairs and Maintenance

Volume 501: debated on Wednesday 25 November 2009

To ask the Minister of State, Department for Transport what the reasons were for the closing off of one lane on the southbound carriageway of the M18 motorway on 24 October 2009, north and south of junction six; and what work was undertaken on that carriageway on that date. (300572)

[holding answer 24 November 2009]: The closure was to carry out advance works for the M18 J6-J7 north bound carriageway resurfacing scheme. The works comprised the installation of closed circuit television systems and average speed measuring systems which will mitigate the risk to road workers during the main works. The scheme will be completed before Christmas.
