To ask the Secretary of State for Transport if he will make it his policy to have the A27 Lewes bypass resurfaced with a quieter material in the next financial year.

Whenever a road needs to be resurfaced for safety and maintenance reasons, quieter surfacing is used as a matter of course. Last year a 1 km stretch of the A27 Lewes bypass was repaired using low noise material.

The bypass is now in good condition and there are no plans to resurface the remainder in the next financial year. However a technical survey is programmed for next financial year and any works identified as a result of the survey, such as resurfacing with a quieter material, would be carried out in financial year 2008–09, subject to allocation of funds.
