The U.K. government looks set to scrap many of the large road schemes being planned from 2025. The DfTs top civil servant told MPs yesterday that, for financial reasons, the “headroom for new projects will be very limited.”
Dame Bernadette Kelly, Permanent Secretary at the DfT, was grilled by members of the U.K. parliament’s transport committee.
