Commenting on the Highways England Delivery Plan published today, Paul Raynes, Director of Policy at EEF, the manufacturers’ organisation, said:

“This is the most detailed delivery plan for the strategic road network we have seen for some time, clearly detailing which projects will start construction and when. The delivery plan will be welcomed by industry and help to support the supply chain in investing in the skills and plant needed to deliver it.”

“The next government must now ensure they do not undermine this new strategic approach by unpicking schemes. It should instead look to expand this approach to the local road network which represents 98% of the total road network in England and, which worryingly, continues to deteriorate year on year.”
