Unadopted Roads

EDM number 193 in 2010-12, proposed by Anne Main on 09/06/2010.
Categorised under the topic of Roads.

That this House notes that there are an estimated 40,000 unadopted roads in England and Wales; expresses concern that often people who live on unadopted roads struggle to access public services and to meet costs of maintenance, for which they are personally liable; calls on the Government to undertake an investigation into the numbers of unadopted roads in England and Wales; recognises that many communities find unadopted roads a problem, which is not fully addressed; and further calls on the Government to consider amending section 38 of the Highways Act 1980, to encourage the adoption of unadopted roads and to investigate other courses of action to address the problem.

This motion has been signed by a total of 26 MPs.
