Will diversion of roads budget to HS2 delay A27 improvements?

Sadly however, I cannot see much hope of anything being done for decades when Secretary of State Grayling has just announced billions from the roads budget will be diverted to bail out HS2 and Crossrail overspend.

Will diversion of roads budget to HS2 delay A27 improvements?

Unfortunately, as the Secretary of State and local MP’s support exiting the EU, I guess that funding stream must now be a non starter.
