Cameron Calls for Plan to Privatize Britain’s Road Network

Prime Minister David Cameron said private investment in Britain’s roads must be accelerated, as he seeks ways to stimulate the economy without using public money.

Cameron will ask the Treasury and the Department for Transport to explore ways of attracting “large-scale private investment” from sovereign wealth funds, pension funds and other private investors. He called for “new ownership and financing” plans to be in place by the third quarter.
