From another Article : (http://www.telegraph.co.uk/motoring/new ... meron.html
Ã¢â‚¬Å“At the same time a legal obligation to introduce better, quicker and more reliable motorway maintenance could be placed on the new owners of these roads.Ã¢â‚¬Â
So what happens is this.
They sell the Roads, The new owners are left with a huge repair bill, because lets face it, teh Motorways are as smooth as lumpy custard in a freezer. Then the new Private owners need to recoup their costs, so they whack us with huge and stupid costing Tolls. Just like the M6 Toll Road - Ã‚Â£5.80 to drive your car a few miles.
The article also claimed that these Toll Roads would result in a Fuel Duty decrease, hmm. We all know thats poppycock, the Gov't isn't going to release its stranglehold that easily on its billions of easy income
