Changes to SRN network?


23 March 2020

The DfT is considering alterations to Highways England’s Strategic Road Network through detrunking and trunking. 

The following local highway authority roads could transfer to Highways England: the A453 from the M1 to East Midlands Airport, and the A13/A1014 from the end of the trunked A13 through to the recently-opened London Gateway Port. 

The following HE roads could transfer to local highway authorities: the A585 from the M55 to Fleetwood in Lancashire; the A40 from the Gloucester Ring Road to Boxbush in Gloucestershire; and the NEC Eastway in Solihull. 

Discussions about other changes are at an earlier stage, including trunking the M65 between junctions 10 and 14 pending the findings of the Central Pennines study.

The details are revealed in the DfT’s second Road Investment Strategy.
