The funding for schemes follows fiscal year cycles and accordingly spend is defined by year 2017/18 2018/19 etc. Additionally, these figures are forecasts and as such they are not are sub divided by county boundaries at the current time.

Current forecast spend for the A38 within Devon and Cornwall is:

2017/18 - £17,367,440

2018/19 - £12,366,121

2019/20 - £11,900,162

The forecast yearly spending figures for the A38 may be subject to change and regional prioritisation but could include schemes on bridge joint replacement, carriageway improvements and drainage works. This work is governed by a series of periodic checks and / or defined maintenance schedules.

Annual routine maintenance, such as grass cutting, is funded from a separate budget and this is excluded from these figures.

The funding settlement post 2020 is still being developed.
