Cuts Watch #38: £5bn of local transport projects under review

08 Jun 2010, by in Cuts Watch

Some new analysis from the Campaign for Better Transport finds that local transport schemes worth a total of £5.2bn are under review, and even a 10% reduction in the budget for local transport would mean £2bn worth of projects would be cut in the English regions.

CBT’s figures, reported in more detail in regeneration magazine New Start, predict that it isthe larger projects (those over £100m) that will be most at risk, and suggest that the North West will be hardest hit by cuts.
