Transport Secretary Chris Grayling has confirmed the 76 local projects from across the country to receive £244m funding to address pinch points and ease congestion.

He also will release an extra £101m for two new major roads in Middlewich, Cheshire, and Worcester in the Midlands to accelerate house building and boost jobs.

Grayling said: “These schemes will provide much needed upgrades to essential local roads up and down the country, cutting congestion, improving safety and shortening journey times for drivers.

“They will also help boost regional economic growth by unlocking jobs and supporting vital new housing development.”

West Midlands roads

The funding covers a range of projects, including:

  • the delivery of contactless payment options across Nottingham’s bus and tram network
  • creating a new link for buses in Plymouth providing direct access to Derriford hospital
  • improvements on the A66 in Darlington which will help unlock 2,600 houses and 4,300 jobs by improving travel connections
Yorkshire and Humber roads

A major road improvement scheme in Worcester with £54.5m government funding will complete a series of upgrades to the Worcester Southern Relief Road, including a new carriageway alongside the existing Carrington Bridge.

This will provide much needed congestion relief and accelerate the building of more than 5,000 homes.

South West roads

Another £47m funding in Middlewich will pay for the Eastern Bypass scheme which will open up more land for employment, potentially creating up to 2,000 extra jobs.

Funding for all these schemes is being provided from the National Productivity Investment Fund and the Large Local Majors fund.
