Policy for Roads: England 1978
|Type||Publications (see all artefacts)|
This week, on Roads in...
We talk about costs, flexible standards and open decisions. Yes, it's the late 1970s, and with it comes a review and cost cutting. Specifically called out within the wordy parts of the report are the reduction in standards of the M54 from D3M to D2M; A27 between Havant and Chichester no longer being motorway; and even that the M40 was up in the air and might well have been constructed as all-purpose between Oxford and Warwick.
