Which of the following most accurately describes the problem?

A 46-MILE extension of the M40 from Oxford to Birmingham was approved by the Government before Christmas. It will run from the M42 south of Birmingham to Wendlebury, north-east of Oxford.

A two-year programme has also been announced to improve the warning signals on a 50-mile stretch of the M1 in Bedfordshire and Northamptonshire. Matrix signals will be placed at lkm intervals and should be ready in 1987.

• One of Scotland's missing trunk road links, a Dumfries bypass on the A75 StranraerGretna ''Euroroute" has come closer with the publication of alternative routes. OPERATORS who falsely claim to be members of the Road Haulage Association will run the risk of being prosecuted, the RHA has warned.

This follows a case last month at which magistrates in Hertfordshire fined a removal company £400 for claiming falsely that it was an RHA member. That case was brought by the county's trading standards department, but the RHA has said it will also press for prosecution in future to protect its members' customers.
