ROADS-A NEW APPROACH. REPORT OF A BRITISH ROAD FEDERATION STUDY ON ROAD FINANCE AND ADMINISTRATION

THE PRESENT SYSTEM OF FINANCE AND ADMINISTRATION, ITS HISTORICAL BACKGROUND, AND ITS SHORTCOMINGS ARE DISCUSSED. A NEW SYSTEM IS PROPOSED IN WHICH MAJOR ROADS WOULD BE OPERATED ON A BUSINESS BASIS UNDER THE CONTROL OF A NATIONAL ROADS AUTHORITY WHICH WOULD HAVE A SEPARATE INCOME AVAILABLE FOR ITS USE. EFFECTS OF THE PROPOSED NEW SYSTEM ON DEVELOPMENT AREAS, TOWN PLANNING, PUBLIC TRANSPORT, PARKING, CONGESTION COSTS, AND THE ROAD CONSTRUCTION INDUSTRY ARE DISCUSSED. /RRL/
