To ask the Secretary of State for Transport, what proportion of steel used by Highways England in the construction and repair of the strategic road network is manufactured in the UK.
12 July 2021
Highways England cannot currently determine what proportion of steel used in the construction and repair of the Strategic Road Network (SRN) is manufactured in the UK. Steel is purchased within the supply chain and not by Highways England directly.
Highways England is working with its suppliers to obtain deeper visibility of raw material sourcing and manage its supply pipeline effectively.
