To ask the Secretary of State for Transport how much funding the Government has set aside for the construction of the Bexhill to Hastings link road; and if he will make a statement. (143147)

The proposed Bexhill to Hastings link road, a Local Transport Plan major road scheme, was granted Programme Entry in December 2004 with an agreed Departmental funding contribution of £47.120 million towards the cost of the scheme. This funding is subject to a number of provisions including the satisfactory completion of statutory procedures. In addition, we also awarded East Sussex county council £0.850 million in 2005 towards eligible preparatory costs for the scheme.
