To ask the Secretary of State for Transport when he expects work to be completed on connecting the Colchester northern approach road to the A12. 
§ Mr. Jamieson
Proposals for a junction between this road and the A 12 trunk road are included in one of five current applications for planning permissions for comprehensive redevelopment of the site of the former Severalls hospital. The Highways Agency has agreed to the principle of the proposed junction and is currently discussing with the developers details of its design and location. Work is not programmed to begin on site within the next three years.
