star this property answer text <p>The closest spacing between two Motorway Service Areas in England is around 10 miles, and the longest spacing is approximately 35 miles. In the case of the longest spacing, if a driver is short of fuel and has just passed a Motorway Service Area, it is possible for the driver to use the next available junction to return to the service area they have just passed, and would therefore be closer to a service area than this.</p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>There are two tolls operated under concession with the Government – the Severn Crossing and the M6 Toll, with maximum concession lengths of 30 and 50 years respectively. There are a further four local authority tolled crossings, and a number of smaller privately owned tolled crossings. Note that the Dartford crossing has a user charge, not a toll, and similarly the new Mersey Gateway Bridge will also have a user charge.</p><p> </p><p>I do not have information on local authority and privately owned tolls. For the two concessions, removing the tolls would involve changing or terminating those concessions. This would mean a negotiation with the toll operating companies, so costs have not been estimated.</p> more like this

Recent periods have seen significant levels of disruption from signalling and track faults, engineering possession overruns, operating problems within both Network Rail and Southern, and external actions including trespass and fatalities. Southern have recognised that performance has not been good enough and have published a Performance Improvement Plan, available at the following web link:</p><p><a href="http://www.southernrailway.com/your-journey/performance-results/southern-performance-improvement-plans/" target="_blank">http://www.southernrailway.com/your-journey/performance-results/southern-performance-improvement-plans/</a></p><p> </p><p>Network Rail are investing in improving the reliability of the assets on the route, including signalling and track renewal schemes, and measures to improve resilience to seasonal weather variations; they are bringing in additional fast response staff across all disciplines, from track, signalling and mobile managers. Network Rail are also bringing in new contingency arrangements to improve their response times. In addition, Southern are taking action to upgrade equipment on trains to improve reliability, to improve crew management arrangements and to communicate with passengers promptly in times of disruption.</p><p> </p>
