Background to the A1 east of England strategic study

The A1 east of England strategic study is one of 6 strategic studies that will inform the development of the second phase of the Road investment strategy (RIS 2). The 6 studies address challenges and opportunities on our motorways and major roads which are too large and complex to fix in a single road period.

The study was announced as part of the first phase of the Road investment strategy (RIS 1) published in December 2014. The RIS 1 and RIS 2 set out a long-term approach to improve England’s motorways and major roads (the ‘strategic road network’).
