The Rees Jeffreys Road Fund publishes its report on A Major Road Network for England.
Report authors David Quarmby and Phil Carey set out that the Strategic Road Network (SRN) doesn’t comprise all the roads that matter in supporting England’s regional economies and supporting growth. They identify a further 3,800 miles of local authority-controlled ‘A’ roads, which, alongside the SRN, forms an 8,000 mile Major Road Network (MRN).
The report proposes a consistent, joined up approach to the planning, management and funding of the MRN on a regional basis, allowing local authority major roads to have a planning regime and funding certainty similar to that enjoyed by Highways England for the Strategic Road Network (SRN).
