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.
