To ask the Secretary of State for Transport what research evidence underpins the work of the Highways Agency in deciding the best environmental protection measures for major trunk road developments, with particular reference to motorway widening. [108659]

The Highways Agency's approach in deciding the best environmental protection measures for major trunk road development is founded on advice contained within the Agency's Design Manual for Roads and Bridges. This advice is supported by the results of research undertaken by the Agency and others. Details of the Agency's research activities can be found in the research compendium on the Highways Agency website.
