Volume 488: debated on Monday 2 March 2009

To ask the Secretary of State for Transport what steps are being taken to increase the co-ordination of activity between the Highways Agency and (a) the Mersey Partnership, (b) Merseytravel and (c) local authorities in order to deliver greater integration and cost-efficiency. (259478)

The Highways Agency is working closely with its partners in Merseyside, including The Mersey Partnership, Merseytravel, and the five local authorities, to produce a Multi Area Agreement. This will deliver efficiency savings and better integrate the respective transport networks within Merseyside. Sharing technologies will be a key area, as well as collaboration on schemes in the Regional Funding Allocation.
