The government this week said it would be giving the Highways Agency £40M for high tech solutions to congestion on the trunk road network. The money will be used to develop reserve lanes for certain types of traffic. A trial lane, which could be lorry only, is expected to take place on the northern part of the M25 or near Birmingham. The money will also be used for schemes to control access to motorways at peak periods, respond to incidents more quickly and control speed limits to improve traffic flow.
