BCC: Road Investment Strategy Vital in Boosting Business Growth

Commenting on the Department for Transport’s plan to upgrade the strategic road network, John Longworth, Director General of the British Chambers of Commerce (BCC) said:
 
“The strategic road network is vital to the UK, but for too long it has suffered due to piecemeal investment and constant changes to government policy. This approach must change if we are to ensure the road network can cope with the expected increase in traffic volume in the years ahead.

“A road investment strategy that sets out how the network will be upgraded over the long term will help businesses plan for the future and provide them with greater confidence in the government’s commitment to improving the UK's infrastructure. It is important that all parties support the schemes identified in this plan, and commit to delivering them as soon as possible.”
