EEH welcomes Transport Committee's Strategic Road Investment Report

July 28th 2023

In March EEH managing director Naomi Green gave evidence to the Transport Committee's inquiry into strategic road investment. Yesterday we welcomed publication of the committee's report.

Its recommendations include a formalised engagement role for sub-national transport bodies such as EEH with National Highways.

As Naomi told the committee, a formal role for STBs would mean that proposed schemes could be designed and finessed to better meet regional needs and account for local knowledge, which could improve proposals.
