National Productivity Investment Fund Bids

In the Autumn Statement 2016, the Government announced £490 million for the local roads element of the National Productivity Investment Fund (NPIF) for 2018/19 and 2019/20, to be allocated via a competitive bidding process.

The local roads element of NPIF is for schemes that:

  • ease congestion, particularly by improving the efficiency of existing roads;
  • unlock economic & job creation opportunities; or
  • enable the delivery of new housing developments.

Greater Manchester submitted a bid on 30 June for £45.791 million, for 11 different highway schemes. Details of these are published here as required by the Department of Transport.  A decision is expected by Autumn 2017.
