The All-Party Parliamentary Group for Better Roads

Department for Transport


The Department for Transport has published a new strategy explaining how local roads will benefit from a multi-billion-pound investment fund and the proposed creation of a major road network.

The strategy will be funded by reallocating some funds raised by the Vehicle Excise Duty (VED), with the aim to improve connectivity of towns and cities across the country.

Its proposed creation of a new major road network would see a share of the annual National Road Fund, funded by VED, given to local authorities to improve or replace the most important A roads under their management.
