Cost of operating the Highways Agency motorway and A road network per vehicle miles
|Operating cost per vehicle mile (pence)|
|2010 to 2011||2011 to 2012|
|Highways Agency (England)||0.3||0.3|
|Yorkshire & north east||0.3||0.3|
The results show that the cost of operating the motorway and A road network when compared to usage of the network has remained constant for the past 2 years.
Operating cost variability is strongly correlated to the number of vehicle miles with high traffic levels in the south east producing the lowest value of the indicator, through to lower traffic levels in the south west producing the highest value.
Operating costs derived from the Highways Agency management accounts include: traffic officer service expenditure: A proportion of the PFI/DBFO service payments calculated from contract data: A proportion of the managing agent contractor’s routine and winter maintenance expenditure and all centrally procured electricity costs
The number of vehicle miles is derived from data in the Highways Agency traffic information system (HATRIS) database
