Twelve transport schemes worth more than £1bn have been given the green light to proceed, after surviving the Treasury's axe.
Chief Secretary to the Treasury Danny Alexander announced £2bn-worth of cuts last week, pulling the plug on some key construction projects.
But 12 major transport schemes survive, including extensions to light rail projects in Manchester and Tyne & Wear. They are:
- A41 Expressway, Sandwell
- A65 QBC, Leeds
- Silver Jubilee Bridge Maintenance, Halton
- Tyne and Wear Metro
- M1 J19 Catthorpe Viaduct Replacement, Leicestershire
- Luton-Dunstable Busway, Bedfordshire
- A130/A13 Sadlers Farm Junction, Essex
- Tees Valley Bus Network Improvements
- Metrolink Extension, Greater Manchester
- Edge Lane/Eastern Approaches, Liverpool
- Bidston Moss Viaduct Maintenance, Merseyside
- Poole Bridge, Dorset
