HC Deb 28 March 1979 vol 965 c214W
Mr. Fry

asked the Secretary of State for Transport what research his Department is undertaking or has undertaken into the relationship between road maintenance standards and vehicle design.

Mr. Horam

The Transport and Road Research Laboratory has a continuing programme of research on the standards for road design and maintenance required to cope with different traffic loads. This takes account of the effect of vehicle design in relation to axle loads and suspention. TRRL's work also covers the surfacing standards needed to provide adequate skid resistance and riding quality for vehicles and their occupants.
