The Government is investing over £15 billion to improve the Strategic Road Network in England and this includes substantial investment in A-roads in the East Midlands.

The £150 million A453 upgrade near Nottingham and the £42 million A14 improvement at Kettering have already been completed. Schemes on the A5, A6, A38, A45, A46 and A52 are in development.

On local roads, the Government announced last autumn that local highway authorities in the East Midlands would receive £21 million of funding from the National Productivity Investment Fund to tackle congestion, boost economic growth and access sites for housing.
