Budget 2020 confirmed that Stoke-on-Trent will receive a share of £117 million of the wider Transforming Cities Fund, subject to further business case approval, which could fund a multi-modal transport hub at Stoke-on-Trent station. This builds on the £5.6m awarded to Stoke-on-Trent in March 2019 from Tranche 1 of the competition.

Budget also confirmed Stoke-on-Trent will be receiving a share of the £500m Potholes Fund in 2020-21, building on the £14 million provided to Stoke-on-Trent for local road maintenance since 2015.

The Department for Transport also confirmed on 18 March that it would be delivering £18.5 million investment in the Etruria Valley Link Road from the Local Growth Fund, improving links to Talke and Kidsgrove and providing up to 2,000 jobs and 200 homes.
