This includes funds for the £185 million Airdrie Bathgate rail project, a new rail/tram interchange to connect passengers to Edinburgh Airport and major road improvements including the new Upper Forth Crossing and Kincardine and a Dalkeith Bypass.
Funding for major public transport projects is split up as follows:
2008/09 - £157.7 million
2009/10 - £262.9 million
2010/11 - £230.7 million
Transport Scotland has said by the end of the control period it wants a design, development and procurement strategy in place for the Forth Replacement Crossing, and that construction for a new railway to the Borders should be underway.
