In his Budget announcement today (March 21st) the chancellor George Osborne has announced a number of measures to develop the UK's infrastructure.
On roads, Mr Osborne said the government is looking at ways to increase capacity and improve performance on the A14 between Huntingdon and Cambridge, which may be part-funded using tolls.
Options being considered include widening some sections, rationalising access to the route, improving the route of the southern bypass for Huntingdon, taking freight off the road using rail services and enhancing public transport.
On rail, the chancellor said the government will support Network Rail to invest a further £130 million in the Northern Hub rail scheme.
Subject to value for money, this will include helping to improve transport links between Manchester and Sheffield by increasing capacity on the Hope Valley line between, which will allow the number of fast trains to double.
Other projects mentioned in his statement included the electriﬁcation of the Welsh Valley lines and a £56 million fund for the Bexhill to Hastings link road.
