Transport minister Sadiq Khan has revealed figures showing Highways Agency spending over the last decade
Responding to a parliamentary question from Harry Cohen MP, Khan has revealed how much the Highways Agency has incurred on constructing new roads in each of the last 10 years.
“The following table provides information on net spend on Highways Agency major improvements since 1998-99. Information before this is not readily available due to systems and accounting changes and could be provided only at a disproportionate cost,” he said.

“On local major road schemes which are promoted by the respective local highway authority, the Department does not hold information in a format which distinguishes expenditure incurred between local major road schemes and local major public transport schemes and this can be provided only at a disproportionate cost,” he added.
