Transport Committee

Local roads funding and governance

Inquiry status: open

Report published on Monday 1 July 2019; awaiting Government Response

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.
