£1.5 Billion For Road Improvement, Fuel Duty Freeze

Posted by Matthew on 28th November 2016

Britain's roads are in quite a state. Over congested (the most congested motorway system in europe), old, and damaged. Any one of our drivers has to put up with this on a daily basis, and knows the cost in wasted time, not to mention frustration! 

So it was with relief that we heard two pieces of news with Phillip Hammonds Autumn statement. The first, the promise to spend £1.5 Billion improving Britains roads. With congested areas, and pinch points the priority. Will this translate in to meaningful differences? Only time will tell, but fingers crossed. 

The second, a freeze on fuel duty,  is also good news, and this one we do know the measured effect of.
