star this property answer text <p>The Government is investing over £13 billion in transport in the North between 2015 and 2020 as part of the Northern Powerhouse strategy. This comprises a range of transport improvements including major investments in the Strategic Road Network (SRN), such as the introduction of Smart Motorways, as well as major schemes on the local road network, significant investment in new rolling stock and the rail network and numerous smaller schemes funded through the Local Growth Fund and the Department’s Highways Maintenance and Integrated Transport block funding. The investment has been allocated through funding mechanisms such as the Roads Investment Strategy, rail investment programmes for Control Period 6, and block funding allocations. It is not possible to provide annual profiles as some funding is allocated on a scheme basis rather than by year.</p><p> </p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>The IPPR North’s report makes use of the Government’s Country and Regional Analysis (CRA) statistics, which are official figures for public sector expenditure on transport at a regional level. These attempt to provide statistical allocations of public spending according to where the benefits of that spend are accrued, although the complexity of transport networks means that it is not always possible to allocate transport spending on a ‘who benefits’ basis. Where this is the case, expenditure has been apportioned based on actual regional spend rather than where the benefit lies. This is particularly relevant for highways. Spend is also presented per head of local population, so this does not take account of the number of non-residents using the transport infrastructure.</p><p> </p><p>The latest CRA statistics, published by HM Treasury on 20th November 2018, are presented in the table below:</p><p> </p><p><strong>Public sector expenditure on transport per capita (£s nominal)</strong></p><table><tbody><tr><td><p> </p></td><td><p><strong>% change over 5 year period 2013/14 to 2017/18</strong></p></td></tr><tr><td><p>The North (NE, NW, Y&amp;H)</p></td><td><p>+64%</p></td></tr><tr><td><p>London</p></td><td><p>+56%</p></td></tr></tbody></table><p><em><sup> </sup></em></p><p><em><sup>Note - </sup></em><em>In 2015/16, Network Rail was reclassified into the public sector and the full extent of their expenditure was included.</em></p><p><em> </em></p><p>The benefits from spend on transport interventions will often accrue to people far beyond the residents of the immediate local area or region. 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 of a region can add to the transport networks. For example, central London receives over 1 million arrivals by train during a typical day, many of which will come from outside the region.</p><p> </p><p>Higher investment figures looked at in isolation do not tell the full story, for example those travelling to and from London are more likely to experience crowding on their rail journeys.</p><p><em> </em></p><p>The statistics do not directly reflect Government’s investment decisions. Investment decisions are made based on a rigorous and fair appraisal process that allocates spending to the projects and programmes where it delivers the greatest value-for-money for taxpayers and passengers. For these reasons, the Department does not allocate funding to transport on a ‘per head of population’ basis. As part of a commitment in the Transport Investment Strategy, the Department recently published the Rebalancing Toolkit, which provides guidance on how the Department assesses how a programme or project fits with the objective of spreading growth across the country.</p><p> </p><p>We are committed to improving journeys for passengers in the North and are carrying out the biggest investment in transport in the region for a generation. Between 2015 and 2020 the Government will have spent over £13bn improving and modernising Northern transport.</p>

star this property answer text <p>A number of schemes are being developed to improve transport links between Sheffield and Manchester.</p><p> </p><p>The Department is working with Transport for the North (TfN) on some highway options. The Strategic Study into the possible development of a more direct highway route between Greater Manchester and Sheffield City Region has so far determined that while a long tunnel beneath the Pennines is technically feasible, the cost is prohibitive and represents poor value for money. TfN has carried out some additional work which suggests that a shorter tunnel beneath the most environmentally sensitive areas, combined with wider transport connectivity enhancements, could help to overcome these issues and provide enhanced access to the Peak District National Park. Further work has been commissioned jointly by TfN and the Department to explore this option in more detail, and is currently expected to report late this year or early in 2019.</p><p> </p><p>In addition, the Government’s Road Investment Strategy sets out a package of measures to improve the route between Sheffield and Manchester. Highways England held a public consultation on the proposals in Spring 2017 and announced the preferred route for the Mottram Moor and A57(T) to A57 Link Roads in November 2017. There will be a further public consultation on the details of this scheme in 2018 and construction is expected to start in 2020, subject to securing the necessary planning approvals. Other elements announced which are not subject to the DCO process include safety and technology improvements along the A628, including localised safety measures, additional advance warning signs to enable drivers to make more informed decisions regarding their journey and possible automation of the closure gates. There are also improvements to the Westwood (A61/A616) Roundabout in Tankersley to reduce congestion and improve traffic flows.</p><p> </p><p>As part of their Northern Hub capacity enhancements, Network Rail have proposed works at the eastern end of the Hope Valley line. A passing loop would be provided east of Bamford, and the line would be re-doubled at Dore and Totley station. This scheme would increase track capacity to allow a more frequent service between Sheffield and Manchester, improve accessibility by sustainable transport to the Peak District National Park and support better integration with freight services. A Transport and Works Act application for this scheme has been submitted to the Department.</p><p> </p>
