UK Prime Minister David Cameron is expected to unveil the country’s first long-term Roads Investment Strategy, which includes a £15bn investment on more than 100 road projects.

The prime minister will be unveiling the plan while addressing business leaders at the Confederation of British Industry’s (CBI) annual conference in London.

The plan seeks to invest on strategic road projects by the end of decade and it will include improvement to the existing roads, addition of extra lane miles on motorways and trunk roads, which will facilitate easy movement for the commuters.

The primary focus of the road improvement project is expected to be along A303, which is the main road between Basingstoke in Hampshire and Honiton in Devon, along with the 410 miles A1 road north of Newcastle, and the A1 Newcastle-Gateshead western bypass.

"The green light given to major projects that have been stalled for years."

The project is also expected to address problems at the A47 road and the A27 on the south coast.

Mr Cameron is expected to say: "Our long-term economic plan is turning Britain round.

"At its heart is the biggest, boldest and most far reaching road improvement programme in four decades; over 100 improvements to our major roads.

"The green light given to major projects that have been stalled for years. Action to improve some of the most important arteries in our country – like the A303 and the A1 – which for too long have held parts of our country back. And all underpinned by over £15bn worth of investment.

"This will be nothing less than a roads revolution – one which will lead to quicker journey times, more jobs and businesses boosted right across the country."
