Welsh Government announces money for housing and transport

The Welsh Government has revealed some of the big-spending capital projects they will focus on in the next 3 years.

One of the key areas was improving transport, with plans to improve the Brynglas tunnels and A55, and £62 million to create a South East Wales metro system.

They have also allocated £170 million to housing - the majority of which will help first time buyers in a Help to Buy scheme.

£38 million will be spent on Health facilities - including building the final phase of Noah's Ark Children's Hospital.
