The Strategic Road Network Initial Report (SRNIR) sets out proposals and recommendations for Roads from 2020 to 2025, with consultation closing 8 February 2018.
Highways England writes:
The Strategic Road Network Initial Report sets the framework for the Government’s approach to RIS2. The report notes:
- Plans to spend £4.5 million on schemes in 2017 to reduce the network’s visual impact and improve the landscape
- Aims to restore the estate condition in order to deliver landscape and heritage objectives, and support a net gain in biodiversity by 2040
- That Highways England is currently reviewing and confirming the influence of the network on the condition of heritage assets close to it (including impacts on their setting) and will then be able to implement conservation measures for those heritage assets which are currently at risk, and to identify and deliver enhancement projects.
The report is out for consultation until 8 February 2018.
