The works on the Great North Road to which my hon. Friend refers are being carried out under Ministry of Transport direction as highway authority for the trunk road. The decision to continue was taken after full consideration of all the relevant circumstances, including those mentioned by my hon. Friend. All schemes on which works are continuing are under frequent review to determine whether, in the light of changing circumstances, their continuance is justifiable.
