My Rt. hon. Friend the Secretary of State for Health has not had any formal discussions with the Secretary of State for Transport on the potential link between living near a busy road and risk of dementia.

In the ‘Challenge on Dementia 2020’ published in February 2015, we set out our aims to improve public awareness and understanding of the factors which can increase the risk of developing dementia; how people can reduce their risk by living more healthily; and a better understanding of environmental triggers that can exacerbate the progression of dementia.
