The Government has agreed funding for the second wave of 57 bottleneck road improvement projects to boost the economy.

Transport Secretary Patrick McLoughlin said many of the £170m worth of schemes would start in 2013 bringing a total economic boost estimated at £3bn.

The so-called pinch point upgrade projects form part of the Highway Agency’s £217m programme to remove bottlenecks and keep traffic moving on England’s motorways and major A roads.

Sixty five projects have now gained funding and a third stage of projects will be announced next year.

Transport Secretary Patrick McLoughlin said: “By removing bottlenecks and improving access to local enterprise zones, key international trading ports and communities, these road schemes will help get people to and from work and power the economy.

“They also have the potential to help deliver more than 300,000 new jobs and 150,000 new homes.”

Major improvement projects include an £11m scheme to widen and improve junction 4 of the M5 near Bromsgrove and £5m widening of junction 5 of the M27, near Eastleigh.
