Commuters and residents in Reading stand to benefit from plans to spend £4.5m on transport projects in the town.
The multi-million pound project includes two road schemes and will be funded by the Government.
Reading Bridge is to have more than £3m spent on structural improvements and the A33 will have £1.5m invested to remove several bottlenecks.
Conservative MP Rob Wilson who represents Reading East has welcomed the proposed injection of cash.
This Government has made Reading a priority for massive transport infrastructure development. This means that Reading will continue to be a big regional, national and international economic player.
Reading Bridge badly needs repairs due to fundamental deterioration of its structural condition having been neglected by the council and the last government.
Motorists and cyclists using the A33 will benefit as extra capacity is to be provided and a series of frustrating bottlenecks are to be removed."
