§ Mr. Baldry
To ask the Secretary of State for Transport if he will make a statement on the progress of the construction of the M40 extension.
§ Mr. Atkins
Excellent progress is being made. Subject to reasonable weather conditions over the next two months I expect the Warwick section of M40 to open to traffic around the turn of the year. I hope that the whole of the M40 extension will be open to traffic by spring 1991.
