The Government will invest over £28 billion in national and local roads between 2015-16 and 2020-21. This includes £10.7 billion for major national road projects, £4.9 billion for local major projects and more than £12 billion for maintenance, with nearly £6 billion for repairs to local roads and £6 billion for maintenance of the strategic road network, including resurfacing 80% of it. This step change in investment will fund at least 26 further major road projects, leading to more than 221 additional lane miles on the busiest motorways.
