Transport Secretary Patrick McLoughlin, said:

  • The schemes we have announced today are designed to target key bottlenecks around the country, making life easier for the thousands of motorists and businesses who use the local road network every day.
  • These schemes have the potential to help create more than 100,000 jobs and around 100,000 new homes.
  • I look forward to seeing works underway as soon as possible.
