Network North will see the investment of £36 billion in transport improvements across the whole country. This includes a wide range of schemes, which will be delivered at various times over the next decade and beyond. We are working with our delivery partners for each project to develop detailed plans. In due course, we will share further details of projects to be delivered and anticipated funding where appropriate.

In the meantime, we are immediately extending the £2 national bus fare cap, which will now continue until December 2024. We are also making £300m of funding available to improve the condition of local roads across this financial year and next. Next financial year, there will also be an additional £150m of funding to support bus services through Bus Service Improvement Plans.
