Transport secretary Alistair Darling will this afternoon announce investment

in roads, with expansion plans for the M6, M1 and A303 in particular, BBC Radio Four's Today programme reported this morning.

'It will be a fairly wide-ranging statement - it will cover roads ... rail, local transport,' Mr Darling told Today. 'The reason for that is that ... the transport strategy has to be balanced and has to be measured.'

More investment in roads as well as rail is needed, he said, because, the

growing economy has meant more people are travelling.
