In January 2017 the Department for transport announced the £210 million from the National Productivity Investment Fund following the Autumn Statement when the Chancellor committed to invest an extra £1.3 billion improving the road network over the course of the Parliament. 

Of this, £185 million has been allocated in the 2017 to 2018 financial year to local highway authorities in England, outside London, to improve local highways and public transport networks with the remainder of the funding of £25 million being available for safer roads to help tackle some of the most dangerous A roads.
