be converted into a fourth lane in a multimillion`pound project `imed at

The Department for Transport, though, has admitted it's lhkely to

:00:24.:00:29.

So now the government is looking at a 60mph speed limit at peak times.

:00:30.:00:35.

It is a plan designed to cut waterway congestion. It is ` stretch

:00:36.:01:10.

of the people I spoke to living near the M1 said they had not bedn

:01:11.:01:14.

consulted. We have not been consulted at all. The pollution I

:01:15.:01:17.

believe, is high, and the non`consultation, not letting people

:01:18.:01:23.

know what is happening, when it is happening, I do not agree whth it at

:01:24.:01:32.

all. By next year, there will be an upgrade at a cost of ?225 mhllion.

:01:33.:01:41.

Then there is a ?142 million upgrade. It will become what is

called a managed motorway, with controls on speed and lanes. To

:01:46.:01:50.

reduce pollution and 60 mph speed limit could be reduced at pdak

times. The government does not want to slow down traffic for long

:01:57.:02:01.

periods. The boss of this h`ulage firm is pleased that the outcome. It

:02:02.:02:07.

is great for business, it is going to any bowlers to get to our

:02:08.:02:11.

destination is much quicker and obviously time is money in our

:02:12.:02:15.

industry and we want to get there and get onto the next job. Other

:02:16.:02:20.

ways of reducing pollution such as barriers at the side of the

motorway, and the Dutch style canopy will be looked at.

Airport will bypass the norlal local planning procedures.

:02:35.:02:36.

:02:37.:02:38.

is regarded as an infrastructure project of national significance.

:02:39.:02:40.

Residents in nearby villages fear it means their concerns will bd ignored

:02:41.:02:43.

Now the villagers have the backing of a former leader

:02:44.:02:47.

The planning inspectors will decide nationally on this. It is a

:02:48.:03:05.

thoroughly undemocratic process I am backing over 1000 people who have

:03:06.:03:09.

signed this petition, in Castle Donington, they are all up hn arms

:03:10.:03:16.

about this in all the villages, I am prepared to give them all the

of the moment her son asked her about claims that she was involved

police detective Goncalo Am`ral The court heard that her son Sean

:03:32.:03:34.

:05:20.:05:24.

can do things. This dementi` specialist in Nottingham saxs that

:05:25.:05:28.

it is well worth diagnosing away. There is a lot that we can do to

:05:29.:05:34.

help people start treatment as soon as possible, to make plans for the
