Derek welcomes more Government investment for Halton

30 Mar 2010

Derek has welcomed the Government's announcement of extra funding for the Runcorn/Widnes Bridge.

The Department for Transport has given the Bridge scheme Final Approval and will channel investment of £18.6 million so that Halton Council can continue the maintenance works programme on the Bridge.

Commenting on the funding announcement, Derek said:

"This investment is essential for this important work to be completed on this key transport route for Halton and the North West.

I have frequently made representations to Ministers about the need to maintain the current Bridge.  I am delighted that the Transport Department has responded positively."
