HC Deb 04 March 1994 vol 238 cc883-4W
Mrs. Lait

To ask the Secretary of State for Transport whether road traffic projection calculations are based on(a) the full economic potential of an area. or (b) current economic performance.

Mr. Key

Local road traffic projection calculations take account of the best available views about the economic performance of an area. They are consistent with projections of local changes in population, numbers of households, numbers of jobs and land use. They assume a uniform rate of growth in average household income across Great Britain, consistent with the rates of economic growth used in the preparation of the 1989 national road traffic forecasts.
