A British government study has found that building more soil and sand to build roads and housing is the cheapest way to ensure our nation’s roads and infrastructure are fit for purpose.
This is despite the fact that most road maintenance costs are now covered by a tax on cars and petrol.
But in a new report, a report commissioned by the Department for Transport, the Government said the cost of land is one of the least-understood costs associated with roads.
The report, by the Centre for Policy Studies, found that, on average, the cost per square metre of roads is less than half that of land.
And this has to be considered when considering what to do with that land, said Dr Ben Jones, who co-authored the report.
The report found that the average cost of building a road is £13,000 per hectare, and that the cost is most cost-effective when building at a level where the ground is more than three metres deep. “
So if you’re building a new road, put it in a better way than you’re currently doing.”
The report found that the average cost of building a road is £13,000 per hectare, and that the cost is most cost-effective when building at a level where the ground is more than three metres deep.
Dr Jones said the Government was taking a “wait and see” approach to the issue of soil and building, and said that if the Government wanted to make changes it would have to do so through the courts.
He said that while the government could “use eminent domain” to buy land, it would not be cheap.
He suggested that a new system would allow the government to acquire land in areas where it was not expected to be.
However, the report also highlighted that building roads would not save money on the average land price in the UK, which would need to be set at between £300 and £600 per square metres of land to make the same savings.
Dr Ben said the report showed that the Government could “make a dent in road maintenance”.
He said: “The Government can do something like take an existing road and make it better for people who live on it.”
If they’re doing that, that would actually save money.
“You’d get better road conditions, you’d get less congestion, you would have a faster speedier journey and a better economy.”
The Government’s new road plan includes plans to build around 4,500 kilometres of new roads and a plan to build 10 million homes by 2030.
The plan is due to be published on Wednesday.
