The Transport Secretary Chris Grayling has revealed details of the first tranche of £220m worth of pinch point schemes unveiled in the Budget.

It is understood that around £110m of schemes to cut congestion and journey times for motorists will be completed by spring 2020.

The announcement includes two larger projects, worth c£30m, which will create an unbroken stretch of dual carriageway on the A69 between Hexham and Newcastle.

A further £14m is expected to go towards creating a new junction on the M11 to provide another route into Harlow, cutting journey times as well as unlocking housing developments.
