Smart motorway vow


NO new smart motorways without a hard shoulder will open in England unless radar technology to detect broken-down vehicles is installed, Transport Secretary Grant Shapps has announced.

The minister, above, also said retrofitti­ng the Stopped Vehicle Detection system to the existing network will be accelerate­d by Highways England. A plan launched by Mr Shapps included a deadline of rolling out SVD across the network by March 2023, but this will now be completed by September 2022.
