In the West Midlands, over £5.1 billion of public money has been spent on transport in the last three years, improving connectivity, shortening journey times, reducing congestion, and transporting people and goods.

Figures are not available at the level of individual authorities. However, in Coventry City, this has included £30m in Government contributions to the Coventry station redevelopment masterplan, £4.7 million local major funding towards the completed Coventry-Nuneaton Rail Upgrade with a station at Coventry (Ricoh) area and extended platforms at Bedworth and £5.5m challenge funding for major maintenance at Swanswell Viaduct.
