Which of the following most accurately describes the problem?

• No longer will the long haul over 1400ft Shap Fell be a winter's nightmare for lorry drivers. Today the Transport Minister opened the 34-mile stretch of M6 from Carnforth, in Lancashire, and Thrimby. six miles south of Penrith, and the three-lane route skirts to the east of Shap in a gradual climb barely reaching 1000ft.

Connecting with the newly opened Penrith by-pass, M6 now runs for 161 miles to Great Barr, Birmingham, there linking with M5 to add a further 70 miles to the Golden Valley junction between Cheltenham and Gloucester—in all approximately 230 miles of continuous M-way.

The adjacent route map is reproduced from the October 24 issue of our associate journal Motor.
