Shapps pauses Smart motorway rollout amid safety concerns

Transport secretary Grant Shapps is slamming the brakes on new smart motorway schemes until a full 5 years’ worth of safety data is available.

The decision to pause all lane running schemes follows recommendations from the Transport select committee, that new schemes are halted until 5 years’ worth of safety data can be collected and assessed for schemes opened before 2020.

Shapps said that the government would assess the data once this milestone was met and make an informed decision on next steps.
