To ask the Secretary of State for Transport what assessment he has made of the proposals on the renaissance project road works affecting the A45 near the national exhibition centre; and if he will make a statement.

We have assessed the scheme against the usual criteria for transport supplementary grant: its eligibility as a scheme on a road of more than local importance; its economic performance and its effects on road safety, the environment, the local community and local industry and commerce. It performed well against these criteria and has been accepted for transport supplementary grant and credit approvals from the present financial year onwards. The renaissance area road and the A45 to which it connects are not trunk roads.
