Paying for roads: time for a change?

05 December 2017

With the exception of a few tolled sections, the roads network is free at the point of use. This distorts economic signals and leads to excess demand. Moving to a revenue neutral ‘pay as you go’ system, using existing and developing GPS and fleet management systems, would provide a way to link usage and cost directly, leading to a more optimal use of the road and wider transportation network.

Over 60 per cent of the population of the United States is within 750 miles of this stretch and it’s this locational advantage that gives businesses in the area a strategic edge.
