The Highways Agency carries out a wide range of investigations to establish whether or not improvement schemes are required to address particular issues and problems on the trunk road network. A complete list of schemes which have been considered since the start of the Targeted Programme of Improvements could be provided only at disproportionate cost.

A number of schemes are currently being prepared and will be submitted in due course for a decision on whether they should be added to the roads programme. However, no applications are currently being considered.
