The article reports on the statement of transport secretary Ruth Kelly that a national road-pricing scheme will be shelved and road widening projects will be limited in favour of pay-as-you-go motorway lanes in Great Britain. Kelly added that a trial on a stretch of the M42 near Birmingham, which uses the hard shoulders as an extra lane, will be extended to other motorways by 2010.
