The Chancellor announced up to £260 million for the Borderlands Deal at Spring Statement to strengthen the deep ties that bind these communities within the United Kingdom. This innovative deal covers all areas in the Borderlands – Carlisle, Cumbria, Dumfries and Galloway, Northumberland, and Scottish Borders. On top of the £102 million announced recently for the Carlisle Southern Link Road from the Housing Infrastructure Fund, this means up to £362 million of UK government investment into the Borderlands area.
