Roads: Repairs and Maintenance

Volume 493: debated on Monday 1 June 2009

To ask the Secretary of State for Transport what recent representations he has received on funding road improvement schemes administered by the Highways Agency. (277328)

The Department for Transport receives many representations on improvements to roads managed by the Highways Agency. Notably, the English regions (excluding London) submitted in February 2009 their regional funding advice on transport priorities in the period up to 2018-19 which included a number of proposed enhancements to Highways Agency roads of regional importance. The Department announced in January its planned programme of improvements to motorways and major trunk roads.
