The Texas Transportation Commission in the US has approved $280m in funding for 11 road projects under its pass-through finance programme.

The projects include State Highway 195, State Highway 201, State Highway 26 – City of Colleyville, Interstate 35 – Williamson County and State Highway 36.

The US state’s pass-through financing is expected to allow local municipalities to fund a project, which will be reimbursed by the state once the project is operational.

This method of financing is intended to speed-up work on transportation projects.
