Network North Funding

March 14, 2024

Made possible by reallocated HS2 funding, £150 million is being made available from the Government to improve roads in each of the financial years 2023/24 and 2024/25, of which Nottingham City Council is to receive £352k (2023/24) and £352k (2024/25).

This funding is part of the Network North plan to improve journeys for all and provides long-term certainty to local authorities. This funding is in addition to local transport funding from the last Spending Review and additional to what local transport authorities were expecting in the future. Allocated across the next 11 years, it will represent more than a two-thirds increase in Department for Transport (DfT) support for local roads.

This is transformative funding, which directly demonstrates the benefits that will be felt right across England for all road users, who will enjoy smoother, faster and safer trips funded from the difficult but necessary decision to cancel HS2 Phase 2.

We have put together an additional maintenance programme using the latest condition data to increase the number of roads within the city brought up to a satisfactory standard. To ensure the funds go as far as possible, the programme is made up of both standard carriageway resurfacing and preventative maintenance. This approach will allow us to cover a larger area and improve more roads within the city. The funds have been utilised in full, and we hope to deliver all schemes on this programme before the end of 2024. Download this document to see a full breakdown of the additional schemes to be delivered using this funding as well as the highways network investment.
