Question to the Department for Transport:
To ask the Secretary of State for Transport, what proportion of the UK's freight traffic uses the Kent motorway network; and what proportion of funding for motorway resurfacing has been allocated to the M20 in the last five years.
Answered by Jesse Norman - Financial Secretary (HM Treasury)
The Department produces estimates of vehicle miles by vehicle type and road type. Based on 2016 estimates, 16.6 billion HGV miles were travelled on Britain’s roads. 1.9% of these HGV miles occurred on the Kent motorway network.
11% of all motorway resurfacing in the South East region during the last five years occurred on the M20.
