The UK Government has unveiled the major road projects that will receive funding in an autumn statement.

The work forms part of more than 500 projects set out in the national infrastructure plan.

Nearly £1bn has been allocated to tackle areas of congestion and improve the national road network.

The projects include £150m for improvements to the M1/M6 intersection, £110m for the A14 Kettering Bypass, £160m for widening the A453 and £110m for the A45/46 Tollbar End improvement scheme.

Another £220m for smaller projects, such as removing bottlenecks as well as improving safety and road layouts.

Around £270m is earmarked for two new managed motorway schemes to use the hard shoulder at congested times on the M3 and M6. The government will commit £170m of extra funding towards local transport projects, including the Kingskerswell Bypass in Devon, the Lincoln Eastern Bypass and Manchester Cross City Bus; it will also write down £150m of debt on the Humber Bridge.

The UK Government also revealed plans to increase capacity and improve performance on the A14, which will support proposed housing developments in Northstowe, Waterbeach and Alconbury.

Tolls will be collected to finance this work, along with other new capacity proposals.

By spring 2012, the government intends to develop proposals with local partners for improvements to the A14 road and the other local transport networks.
