Anthony Smith, chief executive of the independent watchdog Transport Focus has responded to the Chancellor’s Budget.


Commenting on the roads investment announced in the Chancellor’s Budget, Anthony Smith, chief executive of the independent watchdog Transport Focus, said:

“Road users will welcome this, but the roadworks needed to deliver it must be managed to minimise the impact people’s journeys.

“We know drivers want reliable journeys on decent road surfaces. It is good to see the Government has committed to reducing congestion while also maintaining existing roads properly.

“Transport Focus has pressed hard for road users’ views to be at the heart of this strategy. It is good news that our independent survey will be the official measure of road user satisfaction for Highways England’s roads from next month.

Anthony Smith added:

“It is urgent that road users now hear when a decision will be made on the Government’s smart motorway evidence stocktake.”
