star this property answer text <p>The Government’s transport investment strategy is summarised in the Department for Transport’s Single Departmental Plan, which aligns major upcoming infrastructure projects and policy decisions with the four key strategic objectives of economic growth; building a One Nation Britain; improving journeys; and creating a safe, secure, and sustainable transport network.</p><p> </p><p>The current Roads Investment Strategy (RIS) provides details of the Strategic Road schemes in which the Government will be investing a total of £15.2 billion over the Parliament. It also outlines long-term aspirations for a smoother, smarter, and more sustainable road network by 2040. A number of strategic studies are currently underway to inform the second Roads Investment Strategy, which will cover the period 2020-2025.</p><p> </p><p>The Government invests in the rail network as a means of meeting forecast demand, reducing operational costs, and stimulating wider economic growth. It does this by targeting the four key investment areas of electrification, port-to-city freight connections, intercity connectivity, and commuter travel. High Speed Two overlays this programme of investment and targets many of the same objectives. Details of specific projects can be found in the High Level Output Specification (HLOS), published in July 2012 and in Sir Peter Hendy’s report on the replanning of Network Rail’s Investment Programme.</p><p> </p><p>Alongside a decision on additional runway capacity, the Government is also revising its Aviation Policy Framework, which will include work to consider infrastructure.</p>

star this property answer text <p>Figures on public sector expenditure at a regional level are part of the Government’s Country and Regional Analysis (CRA) statistics.</p><p> </p><p>The latest CRA statistics, published by HM Treasury in November 2017, present data up to 2016-17 and are published at:</p><p> </p><p><a href="https://www.gov.uk/government/collections/country-and-regional-analysis" target="_blank">https://www.gov.uk/government/collections/country-and-regional-analysis</a>.</p><p> </p><p> </p><p>The statistics include spend on transport by all public sector organisations including the Department for Transport, Local Authorities, Public Corporations (in the case of transport, this is mainly spend by London Underground) and other Government Departments including devolved administrations.</p><p><strong> </strong></p><p>When assessing expenditure across regions it is important to compare like with like. The benefits from spend on transport interventions often accrue to people far beyond the residents of the immediate local area or region. This is particularly the case for spending on the railways which connect cities and regions across the country and deliver broader benefits beyond the region concerned. Furthermore, when expenditure is presented on a “per head of population”(or “per capita”) basis, it does not account for the pressure that large numbers of commuters and visitors from outside a region can add to the transport networks. In addition, larger built-up areas tend to make greater use of mass public transport systems, though these will generate fares income which contributes to their operating costs.</p><p> </p><p>Statistics for public sector capital expenditure by region are given in Table 1 below. Table 2 provides the equivalent statistics per capita.

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>

star this property answer text <p>Figures on public sector expenditure at a regional level are part of the Government’s Country and Regional Analysis (CRA) statistics.</p><p> </p><p>The statistics include spend on transport by all public sector organisations including the Department for Transport, Local Authorities, Public Corporations (in the case of transport, this is mainly spend by London Underground) and other Government Departments including devolved administrations.</p><p> </p><p>When comparing expenditure across regions a number of factors should be considered. For example, when expenditure is presented on a “per head of population” (or “per capita”) basis, it does not account for the pressure that large numbers of commuters and visitors from outside of a region can add to the transport networks. In addition, larger built-up areas (such as London) tend to make greater use of mass public transport systems, and these will generate fares income which contributes to their operating costs.</p><p> </p><p>Statistics for public sector capital expenditure by region of England are given in Table 1 below. Table 2 provides the equivalent statistics per capita. Capital expenditure has been used as a proxy for spending on infrastructure specifically, but may include some capital investment beyond transport infrastructure projects.</p><p> </p><p>Table 1: Total capital spending on all transport, by all public sector bodies (<em>£millions nominal)</em></p><table><tbody><tr><td><p>Region</p></td><td><p>2012-13</p></td><td><p>2013-14</p></td><td><p>2014-15<sup>1</sup></p></td><td><p>2015-16</p></td><td><p>2016-17</p></td></tr><tr><td><p>East Midlands</p></td><td><p>469</p></td><td><p>597</p></td><td><p>746</p></td><td><p>795</p></td><td><p>664</p></td></tr><tr><td><p>East of England</p></td><td><p>973</p></td><td><p>1,034</p></td><td><p>1,176</p></td><td><p>1,410</p></td><td><p>1,427</p></td></tr><tr><td><p>London</p></td><td><p>3,875</p></td><td><p>4,022</p></td><td><p>4,549</p></td><td><p>5,335</p></td><td><p>5,770</p></td></tr><tr><td><p>North East</p></td><td><p>295</p></td><td><p>323</p></td><td><p>406</p></td><td><p>521</p></td><td><p>512</p></td></tr><tr><td><p>North West</p></td><td><p>1,117</p></td><td><p>1,136</p></td><td><p>1,393</p></td><td><p>1,824</p></td><td><p>1,807</p></td></tr><tr><td><p>South East</p></td><td><p>1,195</p></td><td><p>1,432</p></td><td><p>1,542</p></td><td><p>1,968</p></td><td><p>2,121</p></td></tr><tr><td><p>South West</p></td><td><p>624</p></td><td><p>662</p></td><td><p>803</p></td><td><p>1,011</p></td><td><p>1,169</p></td></tr><tr><td><p>West Midlands</p></td><td><p>826</p></td><td><p>804</p></td><td><p>1,087</p></td><td><p>1,329</p></td><td><p>1,311</p></td></tr><tr><td><p>Yorkshire and the Humber</p></td><td><p>805</p></td><td><p>874</p></td><td><p>1,084</p></td><td><p>1,335</p></td><td><p>1,129</p></td></tr></tbody></table><p><em><sup>1</sup></em><em>Due to the reclassification of Network Rail into the public sector from 2015-16, care should be taken when making historical comparisons.</em></p><p><em>Source: </em><em><a href="https://www.gov.uk/government/collections/country-and-regional-analysis" target="_blank">https://www.gov.uk/government/collections/country-and-regional-analysis</a></em></p><p> </p><p> </p><p> </p><p> </p><p> </p><p> </p><p> </p><p>Table 2: Capital spending per capita, on all transport, by all public sector bodies<em>(£s nominal)</em></p><table><tbody><tr><td><p>Region</p></td><td><p>2012-13</p></td><td><p>2013-14</p></td><td><p>2014-15<sup>1</sup></p></td><td><p>2015-16</p></td><td><p>2016-17</p></td></tr><tr><td><p>East Midlands</p></td><td><p>£103</p></td><td><p>£130</p></td><td><p>£161</p></td><td><p>£170</p></td><td><p>£140</p></td></tr><tr><td><p>East of England</p></td><td><p>£165</p></td><td><p>£174</p></td><td><p>£195</p></td><td><p>£232</p></td><td><p>£233</p></td></tr><tr><td><p>London</p></td><td><p>£466</p></td><td><p>£478</p></td><td><p>£533</p></td><td><p>£616</p></td><td><p>£658</p></td></tr><tr><td><p>North East</p></td><td><p>£113</p></td><td><p>£124</p></td><td><p>£155</p></td><td><p>£198</p></td><td><p>£194</p></td></tr><tr><td><p>North West</p></td><td><p>£158</p></td><td><p>£160</p></td><td><p>£195</p></td><td><p>£254</p></td><td><p>£250</p></td></tr><tr><td><p>South East</p></td><td><p>£137</p></td><td><p>£163</p></td><td><p>£174</p></td><td><p>£220</p></td><td><p>£235</p></td></tr><tr><td><p>South West</p></td><td><p>£117</p></td><td><p>£123</p></td><td><p>£148</p></td><td><p>£185</p></td><td><p>£212</p></td></tr><tr><td><p>West Midlands</p></td><td><p>£146</p></td><td><p>£142</p></td><td><p>£190</p></td><td><p>£231</p></td><td><p>£226</p></td></tr><tr><td><p>Yorkshire and the Humber</p></td><td><p>£151</p></td><td><p>£164</p></td><td><p>£202</p></td><td><p>£248</p></td><td><p>£208</p></td></tr></tbody></table><p><em><sup>1</sup></em><em>Due to the reclassification of Network Rail into the public sector from 2015-16, care should be taken when making historical comparisons.</em></p><p><em>Source: <a href="https://www.gov.uk/government/collections/country-and-regional-analysis" target="_blank">https://www.gov.uk/government/collections/country-and-regional-analysis</a></em></p><p> </p><p>Total capital expenditure is prone to large year-on-year fluctuations as major projects are completed and funding to new projects begins.
