1 December 2014

The government has launched its first ‘Road investment strategy’. These documents set out an ambitious, long-term programme for our motorways and major roads with the stable funding needed to plan ahead effectively. 

This outlines investment to the national road network to:
  • provide a world-class strategic network
  • reduce congestion
  • support jobs and economic growth
  • improve road safety
  • minimise any negative impact on the environment
The strategy comprises:
  • an overview with a summary of the ‘Road investment strategy’ and its impact
  • a long-term vision for the strategic road network, outlining how we will create smooth, smart and sustainable roads
  • a multi-year investment plan that will be used to improve the network and create better roads for users
  • challenging high-level objectives for the first roads period 2015 to 2021
The government committed to establishing the ‘Road investment strategy’, worth £15 billion at the 2013 Spending Round alongside:
  • turning the Highways Agency into a government-owned strategic highways company
  • introducing supporting legislation - part 1 of the Infrastructure Bill is currently going through Parliament
