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