star this property answer text <p>South Western Railways’s (SWR) Franchise Agreement contains provisions that incentivises SWR to improve its own performance, and to work jointly with Network Rail. Challenging targets for performance have been set and where performance falls below expected levels, SWR is required to invest additional sums of money into initiatives to address the causes of the poor performance. This has been the case in the first two years of the Franchise, where targets were not met. My officials continue to closely monitor SWR’s performance and are currently in the process of contracting a Remedial Agreement plan.</p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>The Department has provided £0.784 million for Bikeability training in schools in Surrey. Surrey County Council is one of the 46 local authorities benefiting from a total of £1.5 million investment to support the development of Local Cycling and Walking Infrastructure Plans (LCWIPs). The Department has also allocated around £64 million to Surrey from non-ringfenced funding streams (including the Integrated Transport Block and Maintenance Block) of which a certain percentage is spent on measures which benefit cyclists and pedestrians. Local authorities are also able to use other local funds for cycling and walking projects.</p><p> </p><p>Surrey County Council is part of the Enterprise M3 Local Enterprise Partnership (LEP), which was allocated almost £125 million through the Local Growth Fund (LGF). The Department conducted a survey of LEPs about investment of LGF on cycling and walking projects and this has shown that Enterprise M3 has allocated £42.3 million for cycling and walking projects in their region, including for projects in Woking and Guildford.</p>

star this property answer text <p>Department for Transport funding for local highway maintenance is allocated mainly by formula to local highway authorities at the upper tier, to county councils or unitary authorities, so we are unable to provide a break down by Parliamentary constituency. The formula comprises the Needs Element (£725 million in England outside London in 2019/20) and the Incentive/Efficiency Element (£150 million 2019/20). Integrated Transport Block (ITB) is a formula distribution of capital funding to local transport authorities, which is designed to fund small-scale local transport improvements, including road safety measures, public transport and public realm improvements.</p><p> </p><p>In each of the last three years the Department’s allocation to Surrey County Council for local highway maintenance and for ITB was as follows:</p><p> </p><p>2017/18 £21.072 million</p><p>2018/19 £21.056 million</p><p>2019/20 £21.034 million</p><p> </p><p>The proposed allocation for 2020/21 is £21.034 million.</p><p> </p><p>Following Budget 2018, Surrey County Council received a share, £7.409 million, of the £420 million additional funding announced for England. This was for local highways maintenance including the repair of potholes, to keep local bridges and structures open and safe, and to aid other minor highway works.</p><p> </p><p>Surrey County Council has a Private Finance Initiative for street lighting, for which the revenue grant payment in each of the last three years was £5.955 million.</p><p> </p><p>In addition, Surrey County Council has received over £3.7 million in total over the last three years through the Pothole Action Fund.</p><p> </p>

star this property answer text <p>The Government is providing over £6.6 billion of funding to local highway authorities for local highways maintenance in England, outside London, between 2015 and 2021 to help them tackle the condition of the local road network. Well-planned maintenance to prevent potholes and other defects forming on the roads is vital. Councils that do this well get better value for every pound spent and improve their customer satisfaction. So, from 2016/17, this Government introduced incentive funding to help encourage local highway authorities to manage their road networks better and achieve greater efficiencies.</p><p> </p><p>Local highway authorities have a duty under Section 41 of the Highways Act 1980 to maintain the local highway network in their area. The Act does not set out specific standards of maintenance, as it is for each individual local highway authority to assess which parts of its network need repair based on its local knowledge and circumstances. In a rural area there will be many miles of roads so it is for each local highway authority to decide how to prioritise maintenance of its road network.</p>
