New transport funding to ‘transform’ Norwich, Portsmouth and South East Hampshire
The UK Department for Transport today published details of two lots of extra funding for local transport infrastructure.
Portsmouth and South East Hampshire will receive £56 million from the Transforming Cities Fund to help overhaul local transport links in a bid to boost the local economy, open up jobs and services and give residents greater access to the city.
This follows the announcement on Saturday that Norwich will receive £32 million from the fund.
The Transport Minister, Baroness Vere said:
