Deputy Minister for Climate Change issues written statement on the Roads Review

The Deputy Minister for Climate Change, Lee Waters MS has issued a written statement on the Roads Review which reads as follows:

In September 2022, I published a written statement about the final report of the Roads Review panel. I would like to thank the chair Dr Lynn Sloman and the panel members for their hard work and dedication for this comprehensive and important report.

The Roads Review makes recommendations about future transport policy as well as judging the 55 roads schemes in the current pipeline against existing policy.

Responding to the recommendations is a complex piece of work which has been further complicated by the significant reduction in our spending power following the UK Government’s financial crash. As a result of the Autumn Statement the Welsh Government’s capital budgets will be 8.1% lower in 2024-25.

It is important that we now reconsider our full response to the Roads Review in light of the deteriorating fiscal and economic situation we have been placed in by the UK Government.

We will set out our response, together with those schemes which we will be taking forward, in our National Transport Delivery Plan, which will be published shortly.
