11 Jun 2010, by in Cuts Watch

In the detail of this year’s local government cuts announced by CLG yesterday, spending on road safety has been hard hit, with £17.2 million going from the capital grant for local authority road safety work and £20.6 million from the road safety revenue grant.

Cat at Campaign for Better Transport also has a blog on the local authority transport cuts.

Local Government Chronicle (subscription required) has a piece today on the impact of the local government cuts on transport, reporting that 63 major projects have been frozen including flagship projects in Birmingham and Leeds, as well as hundreds of smaller-scale projects.
