§ Mr. Marks
With the exception of the seven-mile length between Wadworth (A1(M)) and Armthorpe, the Ml8 motorway is either under construction or open to traffic. Construction began on the four-mile section from Armthorpe to Hatfield in November 1975 and is expected to take about 18 months to complete. A public inquiry into objections to proposals for the Wadworth-Armthorpe section was held in December 1975 and it is hoped to announce a decision in about three months' time. Subject to satisfactory completion of statutory procedures, and to availability of funds, it is hoped that the whole of the motorway will be open to traffic towards the end of 1978.
