§ Mr. Don Foster
To ask the Secretary of State for Transport if he will list the Quiet Lane projects across England that are fully operational. 
§ Alun Michael
I have been asked to reply.
There are two national demonstration 'Quiet Lanes' projects, one in the North Norfolk coast Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and one in the West Kent Greensand Ridge. They have been developed by the Countryside Agency, working on behalf of Defra, in partnership with Norfolk and Kent county councils, Department for Transport and the Transport Research Laboratory. There are also eight further areas which are developing 'Quiet Lanes' projects.
