Yesterday various politicians were dispatched to stand on hard shoulders and squint at maps as the government announced a £15bn plan to revitalise the nation's roads.

The plan, which stretches from 2015-2021, includes a commitment to spend £3bn on new projects, with £6bn ringfenced for maintenance. It covers a £1.5bn scheme to improve the A14 from Huntingdon to Cambridge, plus a new tunnel under Stonehenge (cost as yet unknown) and 29 new "smart motorways".

The plans cover 127 schemes, 84 of which are new. It will create 1,300 "additional lane miles", upgrade five airport links and create 12 new expressways.

But what are the projects, and where are they? We've mapped them all. Anyone who had dared to hope the M1's infamous 50mph zone will soon be lifted, look away now.
