The Department provides £258 million/year (£260 million in 21/22) to local highways authorities in England, outside London, through the Integrated Transport Block for small scale transport schemes, including road safety measures. The Integrated Transport Block is not ring-fenced, allowing authorities to spend their allocations according to their own priorities. It is therefore for each authority to decide how it allocates its resources and which transport improvement projects to support.

Bury Council is part of the Greater Manchester Combined Authority (GMCA), which retains an increased proportion of business rates in 2021-22 in place of the Integrated Transport Block.
