Road schemes 'fast tracked'

Two road schemes in the region are to be 'fast tracked', the Transport Secretary has announced.

Patrick McLoughlin said £25 million funding for the Local Pinch Point Fund programme will 'enable early delivery' of ten schemes.

They include the construction of a new roundabout between the A614 Airmyn Road and Glews Garage in Goole and repairs to the A1105 Anlaby Road Flyover in Hull.

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.

– Patrick McLoughlin MP, Transport Secretary
