Transports of delight

AGENDA - COMMENT

REGIONAL funding allocations for transpor t projects across the country also give civil engineers something to cheer about.

Five local authority schemes will proceed to construction within the next few months. A further 17 enter the regional programme as a direct result of local authorities being given the opportunity to spell out their spending priorities.

Of course, there are both losers and winners.

The north-west saw one or two big schemes fall by the wayside while the south-east won approval for all of its priority projects.

It is impor tant to remember spending schedules still need to be hammered out, but the industry at long last has some sort of 10-year transport plan.
