§ Lord Marlesford
asked Her Majesty's Government:
What figure is used to calculate the cost of the provision of public facilities for the movement of freight by road; and when this figure was last updated. [HL4294]
§ Lord Falconer of Thoroton
Figures are not kept in the form requested. However, projected spending on construction and maintenance of the trunk road 85WA network in England for 2002–03 amounts to £1.68 billion. Across trunk roads in Great Britain, movements of goods vehicles and light vans accounted in 2000 for some 22 per cent of total vehicle mileage.
