UK transport infrastructure 'needs improving'

Major investment is required to improve the quality of the UK's transport infrastructure.

Used car drivers should be able to see innovation when it comes to funding projects, Road Haulage Association chief executive Geoff Dunning said.

He believes that motorists have a right to see a better return on their investment after £26 billion was collected in 2010/11 through fuel duty, but only £10 billion was spent on updating the road network.

"Unless we see the issue of fuel prices ... addressed as a matter of extreme urgency, the chances of traffic levels returning to the levels that reflect economic growth will be slim," Mr Dunning remarked.

The expert does not want to see anymore tolls introduced, as a number of motorists are struggling to cover the cost of owning a car as it is.

Members of the RHA recently took part in National FairFuel Day, which sought to highlight the importance of fuel duty.ADNFCR-2576-ID-801320894-ADNFCR
