Motorway and trunk road upgrades spared the axe

By / 8 years ago / Latest News / No Comments

Transport Secretary Philip Hammond announced the schemes, which will accompany the eight schemes announced by the Chancellor last week and include major upgrades to sections of the M1, M60, M6 and M25 to relieve congestion.

The move comes following the announcement in the Spending Review that the Department for Transport's capital spending will drop 11% over the next four years in real terms.

Philip Hammond said: 'Whilst we have had to make some tough choices, I am pleased that spending on transport was treated as a priority for the Government in the Spending Review.

'This Government sees transport as a key driver of growth nationally and in the regions.

'Transport is vital to securing the UK's long term prosperity. That is why these schemes are so important and why I will continue to argue for investment which delivers long term benefits for both the travelling public and the economy as a whole.'
