Following the announcement in today’s Autumn Statement of an additional £1.1 billion of infrastructure spending on the UK’s roads, Peter Millichap, Director of Marketing at Teletrac Navman comments:
“We welcome the Government’s commitment to additional infrastructure spending on Britain’s roads. Greater investment is required throughout the UK’s road network to improve traffic flow and reduce journey delays, which represent a significant cost to businesses.
“Better roads, supported with ever-improving telematics technology and fleet tracking, mean day-to-day journeys will be easier, safer and more efficient for all road users.
“The Department for Transport must now clearly set out where this spending will be targeted and when. Roads such as the A1 in the North East, which is one of the most congested roads outside of London, leaves our customers at a standstill every year. The Manchester M60 is also a regular problem route for our customers, so we’ll warmly welcome all improvements.
“The cancellation of next year’s fuel duty rise will also have a positive impact on the UK’s fleets, and will allow them to invest further in technology to improve their business performance.”
