§ 77. Mr. Sydney Chapman
asked the Secretary of State for the Environment what plans he has for the construction of a third lane, or a relief motorway, for the M5 motorway between Lydiate Ash and the Ross Spur, M50; and when these will be implemented.
§ Mr. Speed
Crawler lanes are to be provided for heavy vehicles on two relatively steep gradients on the northbound carriageway, south of Lydiate Ash. These should be completed by 1975. In addition, the further needs of traffic in the M5 corridor are at present being assessed in the study of a proposed new route between Strensham and Solihull.
§ Mr. Sydney Chapman
