The spending reported by the relevant local authority is as follows:

Total (£)
1997-98 4,827,000
1998-99 7,554,000
1999-2000 6,614,986
2000-01 9,803,469
2001-02 12,291,529
2002-03 11,767,550
2003-04 11,806,578
2004-05 11,332,181
2005-06 13,935,050
Total 89,932,342

Figures include all capital, maintenance, street lighting and structures. Some £8,550,000 of the total has been contributed through developer funding (section 106).

Highways Agency spending has not been included because it is not possible to disaggregate funds spent on cross-boundary projects into individual local authority areas.
