Infrastructure Investment for Yorkshire

Jason is delighted that the Government has announced its long-term plan to repair and update infrastructure in the UK. It will bring our rail network into the 21st century, secure our future energy infrastructure and includes the biggest programme of investment in our roads since the 1970s.

The Government announced £30billion of rail investment in electrifying 850 miles of track, £28billion for road improvements and £10billion to clear a backlog of school building repairs.

There will be at least £20billion available for local areas to bid for under Heseltine’s new growth fund and an extra £600m for another round of the Regional Growth Fund. £10billion will be spent on pothole repairs from 2015-2020 as part of £28billion investment in road network. An extra £250m is being allocated to bring superfast broadband to 95% of homes by 2017.

Also announced was a feasibility study to consider problems and solutions on connectivity to Leeds Bradford Airport.
