Motorway schemes in the Midlands could be the future of road network management in the future, a roads minister said today.
Speaking to ITV News Central, project manager Rob Edwards said: "We're doing extra resurfacing work so that we won't have to involve traffic management and narrow lanes for a long period after we finish this project.
"And that's going to be the emphasis on the way we manage the networks in the future."
