Local Council invited to bid for roads funding

Anne-Marie Trevelyan, MP for Berwick-upon-Tweed, is delighted that Northumberland County Council is being invited to bid for funding for local highways. £198 million is available in 2019/20 and 2020/21 for highways maintenance and £150 million to ease congestion pinch points in 2021/22 and 2022/23. This funding is specifically aimed at local road away from London.

Anne-Marie said "This is great news about investment by this Government in more rural areas, and recognises the importance of our local infrastructure. I would encourage the Council to identify areas where this funding could be used and to apply."
