Though the number of hydrogen fuel cell electric vehicles on UK roads is still in the early hundreds, we have seen some exciting developments with the technology.</p><p> </p><p>The Mayor of London recently announced the first fleet of hydrogen double decker buses in the world and a number of companies are also developing hydrogen fuelled trains which may one day run up and down our network.

unstar this property answer text <p>The Driver and Vehicle Standards Agency (DVSA) reporting system outlined in the answer of 5 February to Question 125528 applies to lorries and buses, because some of DVSA’s powers and responsibilities are specific to lorries and buses. For example; the DVSA has powers in respect of the enforcement of commercial road transport offences but does not have the same enforcement powers in respect of private cars or motorcycles. In all cases it remains the user’s responsibility to ensure the vehicle continues to meet these emissions standards at all times while in use.</p><p> </p> more like this

unstar this property answer text <p>Since wearing seatbelts became mandatory in 1983, there has been a sharp fall in the total number of people killed while driving. Seat belts save lives and the laws we have in place requiring people to wear seat belts are there to save lives. We are grateful to PACTS for looking in considerable detail at what lies behind the disproportionately high number of people incurring fatal injuries while not wearing seat belts. We are currently considering their recommendations and the range of tools at our disposal to increase seatbelt wearing.</p> more like this

It will put Birmingham at the heart of Britain’s new high speed network, including two stations within the Birmingham area.</p><p> </p><p>We have allocated £321.5m from the Transforming Cities Fund to West Midlands Combined Authority who are using it to build the Brierley Hill tram extension.</p><p> </p><p>On the strategic road network, Highways England has just started construction on widening the A500 Etruria Valley, a £17.5m investment.</p><p>In Rail Control Period 5, we funded a number of schemes in the West Midlands, including the redevelopment of Birmingham New Street, upgrade and electrification of the Chase Line, and extension of the Cross City Line from Longbridge to Bromsgrove.</p><p> </p><p>We also provided £5m to Midlands Connect to develop a strategic outline business case for the Midlands Rail Hub programme. We expect this to be submitted to the Department in June 2019.</p><p> </p><p>In November 2018, the Infrastructure and Pipeline Authority published their Analysis of the National Infrastructure and Construction Pipeline. The regional analysis of the pipeline shows that over the period of 2018/19 - 2020/21, the West Midlands will receive £255 per person on average each year of planned central government transport investment, which is the 4th highest of the 9 regions and ahead of London.</p>
