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>

star this property answer text <p>On 29 January the Government announced a £10.2m expansion of the Growth Deal with the Thames Valley Berkshire Local Enterprise Partnership (LEP). We understand the LEP intends to use around £7.5m of that additional funding for 4 new local transport schemes, taking the total funding for local transport improvements as part of the Growth Deal to over £100m, supporting delivery of 20 transport projects across Berkshire.</p><p> </p><p>This funding is in addition to £36.9m integrated transport block funding for the six Berkshire local authorities covering the period 2015/16 to 2020/21, and £2.1m local pinch point funding for the Stafferton Way Link Road in Maidenhead.</p><p> </p><p>The Government launched the Roads Investment Strategy on 1 December 2014. The M4 Junctions 3-12 smart motorway project to upgrade the M4 from east of Heathrow to west of Reading continues to be progressed. The Highways Agency intends to submit a Development Consent Order (DCO) application for the scheme at the end of March. Subject to consent and the final business case, construction could start in late 2016.</p><p> </p><p>The Highways Agency is due to complete the £2.5 million pinch point scheme to relieve traffic congestion at the M4/A329 (M) junction in June, and will deliver a scheme to improve the operation of the A404 Bisham roundabout in 2015/16.</p><p> </p><p>The Government is also investing heavily in improvement of the rail network in Berkshire, including the Crossrail, Great Western electrification and Waterloo-Windsor lines train lengthening projects, which may have the impact of relieving traffic congestion in the county by offering improved alternatives to travel by car.</p><p> </p><p> </p>

star this property answer text <p>The Government is still developing and considering proposals for High Speed 3 (HS3). As such it is too early to say whether or not we would complete a strategic environmental assessment. As we move ahead with HS3, we will ensure that an appropriate approach is taken to assessing environmental impacts and considering alternatives, and that any proposed scheme is developed in line with relevant domestic and European legislation.</p><p> </p><p> </p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>As set out in the March 2012 Rail Command Paper, the Government’s policy is for a market led approach to rolling stock with flexibility for bidders on the rolling stock solutions.</p><p> </p><p>The commercial and risk position of the ScotRail franchise is a matter for Transport Scotland. The relevant documents are commercially confidential between Transport Scotland and the franchisee and the Department for Transport is unable to comment on whether there is a price advantage as a result of the approach. Price is an important consideration for rolling stock procurement, as are risk transfer to the private sector and flexibility.</p><p> </p> more like this

Town councillors, borough councillors and county councillors were brought together in one room to discuss the work. Importantly this gauged their preferences on the order in which bridges would be rebuilt in the Adlington area before any orders were submitted to the local authority.</p><p> </p><p>Network Rail also held information events for elected members and the public to learn about the work before it commenced.</p><p> </p> more like this
