THE NRA & THE MINISTER
You can forget about having any thoughts of reaching your destination any quicker – certainly not by road anyway. The National Roads Authority (NRA) has told The Sunday Times it doesn’t know what funding it will be getting in future and will only be able to start a small number of projects on the national network this year and next.
The agency will start only six public-private partnership schemes before the end of 2011 and accepts the majority of up to 20 ‘suspended’ primary schemes will never have a ribbon cut on them.
Makes you wonder what government ministers will be doing with their time over the next couple of years.
