Local highways maintenance challenge fund

Effective connectivity is a central component of GM’s economic success. 7 million people live within an hour’s drive of city region employment opportunities – the largest journey-to-work area outside London – across the Regional Centre, a number of major town centres and other sub-regionally significant employment centres.

The GM Growth Deal in July 2014 included a commitment for GM to identify a Key Route Network (KRN) of local authority roads for unified management in the interests of the city region’s growth agenda. This has been taken forward through the Highway Reform work and a KRN comprising 616km of the most economically important roads has been established – this Local Highways Maintenance Challenge Fund bid focusses on delivering improvements to this part of the road network.
