Coventry City Council will be considering a report next week around the £12.9 million ambitious capital programme supporting innovative transport and highways projects.
Alongside the enhancement and maintenance of the city’s roads, pavements and transport infrastructure there are pioneering projects such as the Coventry Very Light Rail, All Electric buses and Gigafactory, all supporting the aims of the recently adopted Transport Strategy and One Coventry Plan which continues to tackle the causes of climate change whilst promoting growth and investment across the city.
The programme is funded through City Region Sustainable Transport Settlement, City Council resources, External Funding and Citizen Housing Right to Buy receipts.
Councillor Patricia Hetherton, cabinet member for city services said, “We continue to strive to be innovative and forward thinking in our approach to transport in and around the city. By using this money in clever ways, we can make a real difference, tackling inequalities by providing attractive and viable alternative transport solutions rather than private car travel and also tackling the causes of climate change. Something I think all residents will also welcome are the city-wide programme of improvements to the roads and pavements”
With the Council’s continued success in attracting external funding the city is able to develop and deliver schemes and infrastructure that enable transformation and progression, laying the foundations for a vibrant and cutting-edge city to be proud of.
