star this property answer text <p>Figures on public sector expenditure at a regional level are part of the Government’s Country and Regional Analysis (CRA) statistics.</p><p> </p><p>The latest CRA statistics, published by HM Treasury in November 2017, present data up to 2016-17 and are published at:</p><p> </p><p><a href="https://www.gov.uk/government/collections/country-and-regional-analysis" target="_blank">https://www.gov.uk/government/collections/country-and-regional-analysis</a>.</p><p> </p><p> </p><p>The statistics include spend on transport by all public sector organisations including the Department for Transport, Local Authorities, Public Corporations (in the case of transport, this is mainly spend by London Underground) and other Government Departments including devolved administrations.</p><p><strong> </strong></p><p>When assessing expenditure across regions it is important to compare like with like. The benefits from spend on transport interventions often accrue to people far beyond the residents of the immediate local area or region. This is particularly the case for spending on the railways which connect cities and regions across the country and deliver broader benefits beyond the region concerned. Furthermore, when expenditure is presented on a “per head of population”(or “per capita”) basis, it does not account for the pressure that large numbers of commuters and visitors from outside a region can add to the transport networks. In addition, larger built-up areas tend to make greater use of mass public transport systems, though these will generate fares income which contributes to their operating costs.</p><p> </p><p>Statistics for public sector capital expenditure by region are given in Table 1 below. Table 2 provides the equivalent statistics per capita. Capital expenditure has been used as a proxy for spending on infrastructure specifically.</p><p> </p><p> </p><p> </p><p> </p><p> </p><p> </p><p> </p><p> </p><p> </p><p> </p><p> </p><p> </p><p> </p><p><strong> </strong></p><p><strong>Table 1: Capital spending on all transport, by all public sector bodies</strong></p><p><strong><em>£millions nominal</em></strong></p><table><tbody><tr><td><p><strong>Region</strong></p></td><td><p><strong>2014-15</strong></p></td><td><p><strong>2015-16<sup>1</sup></strong></p></td><td><p><strong>2016-17</strong></p></td></tr><tr><td><p><strong>England - East</strong></p></td><td><p>1,176</p></td><td><p>1,404</p></td><td><p>1,450</p></td></tr><tr><td><p><strong>England - East Midlands</strong></p></td><td><p>749</p></td><td><p>799</p></td><td><p>666</p></td></tr><tr><td><p><strong>England - London</strong></p></td><td><p>4,550</p></td><td><p>5,247</p></td><td><p>6,082</p></td></tr><tr><td><p><strong>England - North East</strong></p></td><td><p>417</p></td><td><p>474</p></td><td><p>520</p></td></tr><tr><td><p><strong>England - North West</strong></p></td><td><p>1,358</p></td><td><p>1,891</p></td><td><p>1,775</p></td></tr><tr><td><p><strong>England - South East</strong></p></td><td><p>1,571</p></td><td><p>2,002</p></td><td><p>2,211</p></td></tr><tr><td><p><strong>England - South West</strong></p></td><td><p>802</p></td><td><p>1,008</p></td><td><p>1,165</p></td></tr><tr><td><p><strong>England - West Midlands</strong></p></td><td><p>1,080</p></td><td><p>1,333</p></td><td><p>1,260</p></td></tr><tr><td><p><strong>England - Yorkshire and Humber</strong></p></td><td><p>1,085</p></td><td><p>1,297</p></td><td><p>1,092</p></td></tr><tr><td><p><strong>England</strong></p></td><td><p>12,787</p></td><td><p>15,455</p></td><td><p>16,221</p></td></tr></tbody></table><p><em><sup> </sup></em></p><p><em><sup>1</sup></em><em>Due to the reclassification of Network Rail into the public sector from 2015-16, care should be taken when making historical comparisons.</em></p><p><em>Source: </em><a href="https://www.gov.uk/government/statistics/country-and-regional-analysis-2017" target="_blank"><em>https://www.gov.uk/government/statistics/country-and-regional-analysis-2017</em></a></p><p><strong><em> </em></strong></p><p><strong> </strong></p><p><strong> </strong></p><p><strong> </strong></p><p><strong> </strong></p><p><strong> </strong></p><p><strong> </strong></p><p><strong> </strong></p><p><strong> </strong></p><p><strong> </strong></p><p><strong> </strong></p><p><strong> </strong></p><p><strong> </strong></p><p><strong>Table 2: Capital spending, on all transport, by all public sector bodies, per capita</strong></p><p><strong><em>£s nominal</em></strong></p><table><tbody><tr><td><p><strong>Region</strong></p></td><td><p><strong>2014-15</strong></p></td><td><p><strong>2015-16</strong><sup>1</sup></p></td><td><p><strong>2016-17</strong></p></td></tr><tr><td><p><strong>England - East</strong></p></td><td><p>195</p></td><td><p>231</p></td><td><p>236</p></td></tr><tr><td><p><strong>England - East Midlands</strong></p></td><td><p>161</p></td><td><p>171</p></td><td><p>141</p></td></tr><tr><td><p><strong>England - London</strong></p></td><td><p>533</p></td><td><p>605</p></td><td><p>693</p></td></tr><tr><td><p><strong>England - North East</strong></p></td><td><p>159</p></td><td><p>181</p></td><td><p>197</p></td></tr><tr><td><p><strong>England - North West</strong></p></td><td><p>190</p></td><td><p>264</p></td><td><p>246</p></td></tr><tr><td><p><strong>England - South East</strong></p></td><td><p>177</p></td><td><p>224</p></td><td><p>245</p></td></tr><tr><td><p><strong>England - South West</strong></p></td><td><p>148</p></td><td><p>184</p></td><td><p>211</p></td></tr><tr><td><p><strong>England - West Midlands</strong></p></td><td><p>189</p></td><td><p>232</p></td><td><p>217</p></td></tr><tr><td><p><strong>England - Yorkshire and Humber</strong></p></td><td><p>202</p></td><td><p>241</p></td><td><p>201</p></td></tr><tr><td><p><strong>England</strong></p></td><td><p>235</p></td><td><p>282</p></td><td><p>293</p></td></tr></tbody></table><p><em><sup>1</sup></em><em>Due to the reclassification of Network Rail into the public sector from 2015-16, care should be taken when making historical comparisons.</em></p><p><em>Source: </em><a href="https://www.gov.uk/government/statistics/country-and-regional-analysis-2017" target="_blank"><em>https://www.gov.uk/government/statistics/country-and-regional-analysis-2017</em></a></p><p> </p><p>For future years, the Infrastructure and Projects Authority’s (IPA) National Infrastructure and Construction Pipeline (NCIP) 2017 shows regional transport spend.

star this property answer text <p>The Government is carrying out the biggest investment in transport in the North for a generation, and remains committed to ensuring that the whole country gets the transport infrastructure that it needs. Most recently, on 2 October, the Government announced an additional £100m for local road schemes in the North to tackle congestion pinch-points and speed up journeys, while an extra £300m will help push forward plans for Northern Powerhouse Rail to bolster links between Northern towns and cities with more frequent and faster services.</p><p> </p><p>The Government is already providing better rail journeys through the Great North Rail Project, new Northern and TransPennine franchises, and High Speed 2, the first new North-South railway in this country for over a century. This will greatly increase capacity and connections for millions of people, with high speed stations in Manchester, Leeds, Crewe and Sheffield.</p> more like this
