Freight links secure funds

Grants of £132 million for infrastructure on four English rail freight routes have been made by the Department for Transport.

The route between Peterborough and Nuneaton will receive £80 million to offer an alternative to routes via London. Links between Southampton, Birmingham, the North West and Scotland will get a £43 million boost.

Funding is available to improve access to Liverpool's docks and increase capacity between the Humber ports. The schemes will remove around 300,000 lorries from the roads each year, the government estimated.
