Roads Minister, Robert Goodwill, has called on Britain’s road building companies to get ready for a massive increase in work ahead of the biggest investment in the road network since the 1970s.

The Government is promising to triple funding over the next eight years with more than £24 billion to be spent on upgrading and improving the network until 2021.

This locked-in funding commitment should support nearly 30,000 new jobs across the construction sector and at the same time deliver a safer, more sustainable roads.
