£1.2 billion local roads funding to improve roads, cut congestion and improve journey times.

Extracted from Gov.uk site as follows:

“Councils across England are today finding out their share of £1.2 billion local roads funding for the 2017 to 2018 financial year, Transport Minister Andrew Jones has announced.

The funding to improve roads, cut congestion and improve journey times includes money from the new National Productivity Investment Fund, announced in the Autumn Statement and the Pothole Action Fund. It also includes £75 million which councils can bid for to repair and maintain local infrastructure such as bridges, street lighting and rural roads.

The government has today also published further information about what the funding will be spent on – the latest step in the economic plan to stimulate the economy and build a country that works for everyone. A key part of this is putting in place improved transport links including better roads, to help people access work, school and services.”
