THE ROAD maintenance programme for the summer months has been reviewed very carefully so much of the work can be done around the Autumn when roads are quieter.
This will help to avoid frustration and tiredness by drivers who recently have experienced endless delays, John Horam, Under Secretary for Transport said in the Commons.
He was replying to a question from David Atkinson, (Conservative Bournemouth East), who asked whether Mr Horam agreed that one of the causes of accidents is driver fatigue and frustration.
Mr Horam said that the Department of Transport tried to avoid peak traffic periods when-road maintenance is carried out. He added: "For example, we shall not be doing any maintenance work on the Midland motorway links during the Motor Show in October."
