Default Smart Motorway Costs


http://roads.highways.gov.uk/project...mart-motorway/

£274 million to upgrade 3 of the 45 junction on the M6 alone.
£4 Billion to upgrade the whole M6.

Motoring taxes generate £6 billion pa

http://roads.highways.gov.uk/project...mart-motorway/

31 Junctions on the M5
£2.8 Billion

47 Junctions on M1
£4.3 Billion

How are motorists going to pay for this as well as the rest of the motorways and the local road they currently use free of charge?

He's not intelligent enough to construct answers.


Then you fall for his little game, Hucker.
You are stupid enough to do this. After all, you are a scum cyclist.
Answer his question, Hucker.

I presume that you do not pay council tax, or any other form of
taxation, as local roads are paid for by the council that gets its money
from council tax & central government.

VED is the only specific motoring tax, it raises £6billion pa of which £10billion is spent on motorway maintenance, even Autoholics Anonymous agree with that.

So you agree cyclists pay for the roads they use many times over given the 4th power of axle loading rule.

I drive 99.9% of the time. If I cycle, it's usually offroad. If I have to cycle along a road, I use the pavement to keep out of the way of the faster vehicles.


Why do cycle at all when you can run faster?

Is this you?

So the VAT on fuel, and tax on new cars, tax on vehicle parts/service.
tolls etc does not exist.

So you are saying cyclists do not pay council tax or income tax?
