Infrastructure projects dominate North-east capital expenditure with upgrades to the East Coast Main Line, the Tyne and Wear metro and the Tees Valley bus network to go ahead.
The North-east will also benefit from the creation of the Green Investment Bank that will be funded by a £1 billion spending allocation and will be used to encourage significant additional investment in green infrastructure.
The government is looking to ensure Local Enterprise Partnerships (LEPS) will play a pivotal role in delivering its aim for an economy rebalanced towards the private sector.
The £1.4 billion Regional Growth Fund will also channel funds into the region, supporting projects with significant prospects for sustainable private sector growth.
