Around 26 projects are planned to start construction although several projects have been pushed back into RIS 2.
The A19 Downhill Lane junction improvement has slipped, and the A5036 Princess Way – access to Port of Liverpool has been delayed a year because of a legal challenge.
Two schemes on the A69, which were proposed as a result of the Northern Transpennine Strategic Study, are currently under review
Between 2015-2020 Highways England originally planned to start 112 major schemes.
After agreeing on changes with the Department for Transport, 70 projects will have been started in RIS1 in their current form.

Highways England chief executive, Jim O’Sullivan, said: “We have made significant investment across the network, opening 48 schemes since
we began operations.
“In 2019-20 we will start work on at least 26 projects, and seven will open to traffic.
“All this is being done while remaining on track to deliver more than £1.2 billion of efficiencies that have either been used to offset costs or provided extra resources to build better roads.”
