Ten cities shortlisted for major transport funding across England
13 November 2018
The shortlist of ten city regions marks the next stage of the £1.7 billion Transforming Cities Fund, to make it easier, safer and quicker for people to travel and get to work by funding improved transport connections.
Local authorities in Derby & Nottingham, Leicester City, the North East, Norwich, Plymouth, Portsmouth, Southampton, Sheffield, Stoke-on-Trent and West Yorkshire will bid for a share of the funding.
Over the next four years, the new allocation of funding will be used to improve transport links in city regions, linking travel to work areas, increasing access to jobs and helping ensure that businesses have the infrastructure they need to thrive.
This funding could go towards upgrades such as new bus routes between residential areas and major employment hubs, smart technology aimed at reducing congestion, or rolling out docking stations for e-bikes.
