Road Fact 2000 published by the British Road Federation claims £35bn was collected by the Treasury in fuel duty and vehicle tax discs in 1998-99. However, it says only £5bn was spent on roads.
BRF director Richard Diment said: ‘The gap between how much the government taxes road users and how much it reinvests back into the network continues to grow, as congestion gets worse and the condition of the network deteriorates. At the same tme many of the external costs associated with road use are falling.’
