HC Deb 05 March 2002 vol 381 cc176-7W
Mr. Pickles

To ask the Secretary of State for Transport, Local Government and the Regions which roads have been de-trunked in each of the last five years; and if he will make a statement on de-trunking. [37230]

Mr. Jamieson

A New Deal for Trunk Roads in England published in July 1998 set out the Government's conclusions on its strategic review of the trunk road programme. These included a proposal to de-trunk roads not on the core network so that their management and improvement can be fully integrated with land use planning and the new local transport plans for delivering integrated transport.
