This is another one in the Roads in England series of reports, detailing the state of road construction from the year in the title.

It's basically full of big tables organised firstly by Trunk or Principal roads, then by region, and finally by top-tier local authority. They include scheme names, lengths, costs, and planned route numbers, but don't include improvements for less than £250k.
