HA business plan seeks £200M in efficiency savings

The Highways Agency has published a set of eight key targets to deliver by 31 March 2008 so that it can deliver £200M in efficiency improvements.
The Agency plans to open 23 major national and regional schemes, and develop a method of measuring progress of major schemes by 30 September 2007.To help ease congestion, the Agency wants to make information more readily available to motorists. It also proposes to make a high occupancy vehicle lane at the junction between M606 and M62.The Agency also wants to boost road user satisfaction, and squeeze the gap between the targets and actual satisfaction by 5% in terms of reliability, safety and congestion. It wants to reduce deaths and serious injuries on roads by a third - to 2,244 - by 2010.It also wants to score at least 95% in the following indicators: air quality, biodiversity, landscape, noise and water quality; and maintain the road condition index at 100 +/- 1 by September 2007.
