star this property answer text <p>As set out in the Transport Investment Strategy, rebalancing is a key priority for the Department, and the Government is investing to ensure that its benefits are realised across the country.</p><p>The Department's Rebalancing Toolkit is designed to help authors of Strategic Cases assess how a programme or project fits with the objective of spreading growth across the country. In addition, the Procuring for Growth Balanced Scorecard, which is designed to help ensure that major government procurements have a positive impact on economic growth, forms part of the development of the Commercial Cases for our major projects.</p><p>The Department's major projects also hold extensive supplier engagement programmes and these are often regionally based. For example, HS2 Ltd has engaged with over 5,000 businesses, from every corner of the UK, to promote HS2 supply chain opportunities. They have supported or hosted well over 100 events in the past three years alone, including a roadshow of events in 11 UK cities, including in Belfast.</p><p> </p>

star this property answer text <p>The Government expects to reach a deal with the EU which will avoid any such eventuality. But as a responsible Government we have to consider all eventualities, and are working to ensure that, should no deal be achieved, additional UK customs checks do not take place at the frontier, and so do not result in disruption to surrounding transport infrastructure. The possibility, that checks required by the EU in Member States might have such an effect, is being considered where appropriate by Local Resilience Fora (LRFs), with the ports themselves closely involved; and by the Devolved Administrations in relation to ports in their territories.</p><p>Specifically in relation to the short Strait crossings from Dover and through the Channel Tunnel, we announced in May the development of Operation Brock which, in the event of serious disruption to those routes from whatever cause, will ensure that the M20 will be kept open and traffic will continue to flow in both directions. Operation Brock consists of three phases, a contraflow queuing system on the M20, a holding areas at Manston Airport and, if necessary, a holding area on the M26. The Department is working closely with the Kent Resilience Form, the Port of Dover, Eurotunnel and other associated bodies. The contraflow queuing system on the M20 will cost about £30 million to build and operate and would be used for all disruption events including those seen in 2015. The works required for the M26 are within the region of £5 million.</p><p> </p><p> </p>
