Millions to be available for transport
6:00am Tuesday 26th February 2013 in Politics
MILLIONS of pounds of funding for transport in Southampton and Hampshire could soon be available.
The city council’s Cabinet has voted to sign up for a local transport body (LTB) agreement for the Solent area.
The agreement will see the council working alongside other authorities in the region to bid for funding.
An estimated £29 million is expected to be made available by the Department for Transport (DfT) for transport improvements in the Solent area from 2015-19.
The agreement will be sent to the DfT for final approval later this year.
