Late and over-budget Tories blasted for A21 road-building shambles

Responding to an National Audit Office (NAO) report on the Road Investment Strategy that shows the Tory Government's road building plan is facing an extra £500 million in costs, including the vital A21 hospital link from Tonbridge to Pembury which shows an increase in the latest forecast of almost 74%,

Alan Bullion, Liberal Democrat parliamentary spokesman for Sevenoaks and Swanley said:

"The Conservative government has built just 5% of the roads they have announced, often to much fanfare. The Department of Transport should just call themselves a microwave because of the amount of times they seem to reheat things. The NAO report is damning. It is the civil servant version of a justified character assassination. This whole scheme is late and over-budget. The Tory government are an utter shambles."
