Councils encouraged to bid for £490m road funding

Local authorities can now bid for a share of £490m to target congested local roads.


Councils are encouraged to bid for £490m in road funding to tackle congestion.

The funds from the DfT form part of the £690m announced in the Spring Budget to tackle urban congestion and get local transport networks moving again.

The funding is from the National Productivity Investment Fund and will be for schemes from 2018 to 2020 which will cut congestion, including by making use of technology and by opening up the data held by local councils.
The competition will run until 30 June and councils will be provided with details of how to bid.
