Once Crossrail services begin across the whole line in 2019, passengers travelling to London from Windsor, Reading and other Thames Valley stations will be able to travel to more destinations across London without the need to change at Paddington. Construction of Crossrail is now more than half completed and electrification of the Great Western Main Line is also under way. Electrification of the Slough to Windsor route is approved and will improve local connectivity.</p><p> </p><p>The transformation of Reading station was completed on time and under budget as part of the £850 million Reading Station Area Redevelopment programme and formally opened by Her Majesty The Queen on 17 July.</p><p> </p><p>The Government continues to progress the M4 Junction 3–12 smart motorway project, the next step for which is formal public consultation in the autumn. The Highways Agency is also taking forward a £2.5 million pinch point scheme to increase capacity at the M4/A329 (M) junction.</p><p> </p><p>On 7 July the Government agreed the £96.9m Growth Deal with the Thames Valley Berkshire Local Enterprise Partnership.

The first additional vehicles are now in service. From May 2014, platform 20 of the former Waterloo International station will be brought into use for scheduled services. Construction of Crossrail is now half completed and electrification of the Great Western Main Line is also under way; the Slough to Windsor &amp; Eton Central line will be electrified by 2019. The Highways Agency is welcoming preliminary comments on the M4 Smart Motorway scheme between Junction 3 (Hayes) and Junction 12 (Theale) until the end of April 2014, and will conduct a formal public consultation on the scheme in the autumn. Subject to development consent and the final business case, construction could start in spring 2016.</p>

star this property answer text <p>A Northwest Runway at Heathrow will improve the UK’s connectivity, with more frequent services to important destinations around the world, providing benefits for passengers and freight-operators across the UK. While Heathrow expansion will help to secure the UK’s status as a global aviation hub, we will also see airports across the country continuing to develop their point-to-point networks.</p><p> </p><p>The table referred to shows that passenger numbers at airports outside of London are expected to increase by 80 per cent between 2016 and 2050 with a third runway at Heathrow, with the equivalent increase in flights being 71 per cent. The Government recognises that all three schemes for expansion in the South East are projected to result in regional airports experiencing lower growth in flights than they would have otherwise seen without expansion, but there is still expected to be strong growth at non-London airports relative to today.</p><p> </p><p>Crucially, the Department’s forecasts do not take into account the ability of the scheme promoter and Government to strengthen specific routes, or other measures to enhance regional connectivity. In addition, the modelling does not take account of future commercial strategies that individual airports could employ to take advantage of the opportunities from both growing demand outside of London and the greater connections offered by an expanded Heathrow. Therefore, it is not surprising that Heathrow expansion is supported by a range of UK airports across all parts of the country, including Liverpool-John Lennon, Glasgow and Newquay.</p>

star this property answer text <p>As Robert Goodwill informed the House in a written answer on 10 February 2015 [223954], between 2010 and 2014 the real cost of motoring, including the purchase of a vehicle, decreased by 5%. The Government has contributed to this in a number of ways. The Chancellor of the Exchequer confirmed in the 2014 Budget that Fuel Duty would be frozen to the end of this Parliament. The maximum MoT test fee has also been frozen for the duration of this Parliament. Last October, I announced that we would be reducing driving licence fees by up to 32% and that theory test fees would drop by 25%.</p><p> </p><p>In addition, various measures have been taken to reduce and simplify motorists’ paperwork, including abolishing the paper tax disc which should save businesses around £8m per year and motorists £5m per year; removing the insurance check at vehicle relicensing which should save motorists around £1m per year; and removing the requirement to make annual Statutory Off Road Notifications, with savings for private motorists estimated to be nearly £6m per year.</p><p> </p><p>By investing in the road network, including allocating around £1billion more for local roads maintenance, including on potholes, in this Parliament compared to the previous one and a further £6 billion of funding announced in December 2014, the Government has helped to make journeys smoother, safer and more reliable, saving motorists time and wear and tear on their vehicles.</p><p> </p><p> </p>
