Ten schemes to remove bottlenecks on the local highway network have been given the green light by Transport Secretary Patrick McLoughlin.

This £25m of funding is the first allocation from the £170m Local Pinch Point Fund programme to enable early delivery of these schemes which will help support employment while unlocking development sites to help local businesses and communities.

McLoughlin said: “Tackling bottlenecks on the highway network will help keep get the country moving and the economy growing.

“I want to see this work underway and shovels in the ground as soon as possible, so today I am announcing £25 million to fast track the first 10 schemes.”

Of the 10 schemes awarded funding today, four are expected to commence in the next few weeks, with the others starting over the coming year.
