Carl Sargeant, Minister for Local Government and Communities
I am announcing my decision on the allocation of funds to support Regional Transport Consortia in 2012-13 today.
Following the approval of the four Regional Transport Plans in December 2009, and funding allocations in FY2010-11 and FY2011-12, the Regional Transport Consortia have submitted a further round of proposals to deliver the aspirations identified in their Plans in FY2012-13 including proposals to improve Road Safety.
I am pleased to announce that a Regional Transport Consortia Grant of £25 million will be apportioned as follows:
- Sewta £10.631 million
- SWWITCH £5.657 million
- Taith £5.618 million
- TraCC £3.094 million
The allocation will deliver schemes to support the Regional Transport Plans and improve Road Safety in Wales.
