Transport: The Department for Transport rail policy.
Witnesses: Rt Hon Patrick McLoughlin MP, Secretary of State, Department for Transport Philip Rutnam, Permanent Secretary, Department for Transport
The Government have an ambitious £15.2 billion plan to triple annual spending on England’s motorways and major A roads by the end of the decade, to improve capacity and condition as set out in the road investment strategy. I recently met Jim O’Sullivan, who was appointed chief executive of Highways England at the beginning of July, and there will of course be further meetings...
Of course, road improvements cannot take place without some disruption to the motorist, but I well understand the frustration that many people who use the M1 feel about the length of roadway that is currently under repair. I have already taken that up with the chief executive.
