National Productivity Investment Fund
The Department for Transport (DfT) National Productivity Investment Fund (NPIF) aims to cut congestion and improve maintenance on key networks, improve access to employment and housing and support economic development.
We have been allocated £1.01million from the NPIF in 2017/18, which is proposed to be allocated as set out in the table below:
|Scheme No.||Scheme name||Scheme description||
|1||Western Approach Business Park, Severn Beach||Resurface Western Approach Distribution Park||330||Complement new M49 junction|
|2||B4058 Bristol Road/Latteridge Road and Bristol Road/Wotton Road junctions||Resurface the two junctions and upgrade traffic signals||–||430||Complement new housing expansion in Yate|
|3||Bromley Heath Viaduct – essential maintenance work||Contingency||250||–|
In order to support the continued investment in highways maintenance and the essential maintenance work on the Bromley Heath viaduct, Environment and Community Services Committee is recommended to request that Policy and Resources Committee add the new highway maintenance schemes to the capital programme as set out in the table above and funded from the new NPIF.
Application for funds 2018/19
We have submitted a joint West of England Combined Authority bid with Bristol City and Bath & North East Somerset Councils.
This proposal is to improve a number of key and linked highway junctions across the West of England; these align with the WoE Joint Transport Study Emerging Transport Vision.
