Blueprint for Northern Powerhouse unveiled

The funding will be used for major infrastructure projects to provide better transport links in the north, aiming to transform the region and close the economic gap between the north and south.

Commercial secretary at the Treasury, Lord O’Neill, said: “Investing in first class transport infrastructure is a key part of our commitment to create a Northern Powerhouse.

“Our investment is helping to better connect the region, building a strong Northern economy, and it is great to see the huge progress already underway.”
