Road Privatisation - The Road To Hell



David Cameron has, quite rightly, observed that Britain's roads are in a mess.

Hi solution?

Privatisation of motorways and A roads, whereby companies would lease roads and receive a portion of the annual vehicle licence fee to maintain and upgrade the network. Firms would be allowed to charge tolls and, theoretically, use the revenues received to build more roads.

An "interesting" idea

However, given the shambles of the privatised rail network, airports, and water companies, I am somewhat "baffled" at Cameron's belief that this will actually work.
