To ask the Secretary of State for Transport, pursuant to paragraph 4.1.1 Safer Roads of the Highways England Delivery Plan 2015-2020, what progress has been made on ensuring that Highways England meets its target of ensuring that by the end of 2020 (a) 90 per cent of travel on the strategic road network is on roads with a safety rating of EuroRAP 3* or equivalent and (b) the majority of those roads with a 1* and 2* rating have been brought up to 3*.

The strategic road network is one of the safest national road networks in the world. Highways England is committed to maintaining and improving levels of safety across the network, including single carriageways that typically have a lower star rating.

Highways England are making good progress against these targets and will publish updated figures later this year.
