Roads: Lancashire

Volume 481: debated on Monday 20 October 2008

To ask the Secretary of State for Transport what recent discussions he has had with Lancashire county council on improving safety on (a) the A59 and (b) other roads in the council's area. (228538)

The Department for Transport has not held formal meetings with Lancashire county council specifically about the A59. The A59 is a non-trunk principal road. The county council is primarily responsible for safety on the road, and other similar roads, within its administrative area.

Departmental officials have talked with Lancashire county council officials about work supported by a road safety partnership grant not specific to the A59, about major (costing more than £5 million each) road projects and about local transport planning and delivery more generally.
