Transport Innovation Fund

Volume 491: debated on Wednesday 22 April 2009

To ask the Secretary of State for Transport which local authorities have submitted bids for Transport Innovation Fund funding; and for what projects each is bidding. (270127)

So far Transport Innovation Fund Proposals have been submitted by the Association of Greater Manchester Authorities but, following a local referendum, they have decided not to proceed with them. We continue to work with a number of other authorities as they consider their congestion problems and the role that demand management, including road pricing, alongside better public transport could play in tackling them and, if appropriate, develop proposals.
