Network North is a new £36 billion plan to improve our country’s transport.
The funding will be used to change our approach to transport infrastructure in line with 3 priorities. They are to:
- drive better connectivity within our towns, suburbs and cities
- drive better connectivity between our towns and cities
- improve everyday local journeys for people
Network North road improvement schemes
As part of Network North, we are increasing funding for most existing Major Road Network and Large Local Major road schemes. These schemes, subject to successful business case approval, will benefit from an uplift in government contribution from 85% to 100% of their costs at the outline business case (OBC) stage. The increased funding will help ensure the delivery of these road schemes.
