unstar this property answer text <p>The Government recognises the importance of good local bus and rail infrastructure to businesses. For this reason, I am working with the Secretary of State for Transport to ensure that upgrading infrastructure is one of the key pillars of the Government’s emerging Industrial Strategy.</p><p>In addition to our work on the emerging Industrial Strategy, the Government continues both to invest in transport infrastructure and to provide new powers to local areas, to ensure local transport services meets the needs of businesses and the wider community. As such we are investing £46bn to operate and enhance the railway between 2014-19 and a further £900m, through the Local Growth Fund, towards schemes that improve rail and bus infrastructure. We have also given local communities new ways to improve local transport for the benefit of businesses. For example, the Bus Services Act gives new powers to local authorities and bus operators to work with local businesses to provide the services they need.</p>
