Highways - Compulsory Purchase & Compensation
The government is committed to the biggest road building programme in a generation. They will spend over £15 billion on 100 major schemes to improve highways in England up to 2020, and more beyond via their agency Highways England and county Highways Authorities. This will involve the extensive use of compulsory purchase powers over private property interests and rights. Claimants should take specialist compulsory purchase advice to get best value for their property from the compensation system.

• A27 ‘missing links’
• Dualling A14 Cambridge to Milton Keynes
• A303 and tunnel at Stone Henge
• Smart Motorways across the country
