Encouraging investment in roads, new technology and connectivity for economic growth.

It is a fundamental need for the UK economy that goods can be moved to meet the needs of people and businesses in an efficient and predictable way.

Road haulage and coach tourism is critical to keeping our economy and supply chains running all year round.  The UK economy is reliant on the efficient and predictable movement of goods and people to meet the needs of UK consumers and businesses.

The current levels of road congestion result in unpredictable and longer journey times which leads to decreased productivity, increased emissions, more unnecessary cost, and damages the competitiveness of the UK economy. Maintaining investment in road infrastructure is vital for the economy, and ultimately the environment.

The RHA is campaigning for the UK and devolved governments and local authorities to maintain and extend commitments to long-term investment in the road system – on the strategic road network, the major road network, and other major local roads.

Our key asks on infrastructure are: 

  • Establish RHA’s involvement in the next Road Investment Strategy
  • Develop an industry list of required road improvements and bridge upgrades
  • Increase green fuelling infrastructure 
  • A Solution to Operation Brock
