The Government is committed to levelling up and spreading opportunity to all region and nations in the UK. This includes a £5bn package of investment for buses and cycling and a consultation on Freeports. We have confirmed that we will proceed with HS2 to deliver essential North-South connectivity, greater capacity, and shorter journey times.

This will build on £13bn of investment in transport in the North - more than ever before by government, including £3bn investment to improve strategic roads across the region.
