Roads: Capital Investment

Written parliamentary question to the Chancellor of the Exchequer

Wednesday, May 27th, 2015

Richard Burden: To ask Mr Chancellor of the Exchequer, what plans his Department has to review the spending commitments in the Road Investment Strategy 2015-20.

Greg Hands: The Road Investment Strategy, published at the time of the 2014 Autumn Statement, set out ambitious plans for improvements to the national road network between 2015 and 2020. The road network is a critical national infrastructure asset that is vital for successful economic growth, supporting jobs and productivity. This is why this Government made a clear commitment in its manifesto to invest £15 billion in roads, and the Prime Minister has made clear that the Government will implement its manifesto in full.
