Scope of the inquiry
The Transport Select Committee is launching an inquiry into local roads funding and governance.
Local roads in England comprise over 97% of the total road network length and carry two-thirds of motor traffic and almost all cyclist movements. They are the arteries for vibrant and prosperous towns and cities, and are critical to moving goods and ensuring all of us can get to our destination.
The consequences of a deteriorating local road network can be significant, undermining both the economic performance of a region and resulting in direct costs to motorists, for example, through damage to road vehicles.
If you wish to submit evidence to this inquiry, the deadline to do so is Tuesday 2 October 2018.
Evidence given by Jesse Norman MP, Minister of State, and Steve Berry OBE, Head of Highways Maintenance, Innovation, Resilience, Light Rail and Cableways Branch, Department for Transport.
There are currently no public meetings scheduled.
