Question for Department for Transport

UIN 43723, tabled on 20 July 2016

To ask the Secretary of State for Transport, whether dual carriageways are more expensive to build than three lane roads.

Answered on

5 September 2016

Although a two lane dual carriageway might be expected to cost more to build than a three lane single carriageway, simply because it is wider, the costs involved in building new carriageways are influenced by a wide range of considerations specific to the particular location, such as topography, cost of acquiring land etc.
