§ Mr. Buchanan-Smith
asked the Secretary of State for Scotland which roads 446W have been detrunked in each of the past 10 years; how many miles in each case; whether each road detrunked was replaced by an alternative road which was trunked; and, in the case of each road, what major improvements had been identified but not carried out at the time of detrunking.
§ Mr. Millan
Comprehensive information is not readily available since detrunking is associated with a large number of new road, or road improvement, schemes. Detrunked lengths are normally replaced by an alternative road and the carrying out of major improvements is not a precondition of detrunking.
