Which of the following most accurately describes the problem?

for the city's transport spending over the next decade. They could lead to more restrictions for hauliers, but also call for improvements to the infrastructure.

Kiley's business plan, now due to go to Transport for London's board and Mayor Ken Livingstone for approval, is expected to ask the government to raise its grant by 40% over the coming years to allow the capftal's authorities to tackle problems in the system.

According to Transport for London—the sub-division of the Greater London Authority which is responsible for transport infrastructure—the roads have proved to be in a much worse state than was previously thought.

As a result, Kiley says he wants to put the expensive Crossrail project on ice and spend 75% of the first year's budget on improving maintenance and repairs to London's transport infrastructure. The capital's roads are in a dreadful state and poor signing is blamed for

billions of pounds worth of delays every year.

However. Kiley's plan to boost bus mileag 3-4% annually, improving frequency and relia by introducing more bus lanes and other enfc ment measures, will only add to restriction hauliers. The plan to introduce conge: charges in 2003 remains.

He also plans more one-way streets and o measures to reduce congestion. The only road project in the plan is the Coulsdon r road, which should be in place by 2003.
