Highways Agency identifies strategies to improve M62, A1 and A12

The Highways Agency (HA) has revealed strategies to transform three major trunk roads across England, which will be used to identify priority work before the next spending review in 2015.

The strategies, which set out plans for improving the A12, M62 and A1 in the long term, were developed in partnership with local authorities and local enterprise partnerships to assess problems and challenges the UK’s trunk road network faces.

The HA hopes to adopt the same approach across the rest of the network, with plans to produce strategies for all motorways and major A-roads by Spring 2014.

The initial three strategies were published last week and set out possible plans to turn a stretch of the M62 between Junction 25 (Brighouse) and Junction 30 (Rothwell) into a managed motorway; plans to bring the A1 between Tyne and Wear and the M25 to motorway standard; and introducing a fast response service to clear incidents such as broken down vehicles on the A12, which links London and the south-east with the ports of Felixstowe and Harwich.

It will use the evidence gathered from these strategies to identify problems with the roads, the possible steps to overcome them and the priorities for the next spending review period.

Roads minister Stephen Hammond said: “I am confident the evidence that we will gather will enable us to develop longer term investment plans that better balance national and local priorities, allowing us to invest in improvements where they will have the greatest impact.”
