The Government is spending £15 billion through its Road Investment Strategy to improve the Strategic Road Network. No systematic assessment has been made about using tolls for funding expansion and improvement of the strategic road network in general. However, the Government considers that tolls can have a role in funding expensive infrastructure such as river crossings.
