As I set out in answer to my Honourable Friend’s previous question on this topic on 25 March, 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, and a share of the £500m Potholes Fund in 2020-21, and £18.5 million investment in the Etruria Valley Link Road from the Local Growth Fund.

I can now add that the region will also benefit from £2 billion cycling and walking investment set out by the Transport Secretary earlier this month, with further details to be confirmed in due course.
