On the 6th April the government invited Local Authorities to bid for a share of this funding for schemes meeting the core aims of the fund to:

  1. Ease congestion and provide upgrades on important national, regional or local routes
  2. Unlock economic and job creation opportunities
  3. Enable the delivery of new housing developments

The West of England Combined Authority (WECA) councils (inc. Bristol) have applied for funding. Bristol has also submitted a separate bid to the same competition.

More information about these bids can be found below.
