The £5.7 billion City Region Sustainable Transport Settlements (CRSTS) programme provides long-term capital funding to improve the local transport networks of eight city regions across England over the next five years from 2022/23. These five-year settlements, confirmed with Mayoral Combined Authorities (MCAs), consolidate new and existing funds in these areas, including the Highways Maintenance Block, Integrated Transport Block, and the Potholes Fund.

The eligible MCAs have flexibility to manage their settlements to meet local transport priorities, including discretion on the funding of highways maintenance programmes within their areas and constituent local authorities. Prior to 2022/23 there were no local authorities covered by CRSTS, but funding for constituent local authorities still went directly to the MCA.

For 2019/20, the Pothole Action Fund was combined with the Flood Resilience Fund. The two funds provided a total of £50 million and the individual allocations for eligible local authorities in England, outside of London, are listed in the table below.

Details of the individual allocations for the remaining five years for local authorities are published on GOV.UK at the following links:
