Hopes for 8 road schemes
MILLIONS of pounds will be sought for eight key transport schemes in Gloucestershire.
The county council is tabling separate bids for much-needed cash to sort out projects including the A40 Over roundabout, improvements to the A419 between Stroud and Junction 13 of the M5, the heavily congested C&G and Walls roundabouts in Gloucester and LED street lighting among others.
The authority is seeking the cash via the newly formed Local Transport Body (LTB), made up of the council, the Local Enterprise Partnership and Leadership Gloucestershire.
Councillor Chas Fellows, member for planning, economy and environment, said: "Implementing these schemes would make a real difference to people living and working in the county and to the county's future economic growth, by reducing journey times or improving public transport."
