To ask the Minister of State, Department for Transport what recent representations he has received on funding for the construction of bus lanes in (a) Essex and (b) Castle Point. (282812)

The Department for Transport received advice in February 2009 from the East of England region on its transport priorities in the period up to 2018-19 as part of its Regional Funding Advice to Government. This includes proposals for investment in Essex for bus-based schemes such as South Essex Rapid Transit and the A13 Passenger Transport Corridor. The Department expects to be in a position to respond to this advice in the next few weeks.
