Co-operative transport fund launched

Co-operative transport fund launched

A £2m fund aims to help councils capitalise on emerging technologies and deliver better journeys for motorists.

Local authorities have been invited by the Department for Transport to apply for a share of the money to develop projects to greatly enhance journeys.

Proposals include using technology that will allow vehicles to communicate with each other and roadside sensors to provide the drivers with real-time traffic information.

Councils will also be able to look at how warnings about changing weather and traffic conditions can be sent directly to vehicles, so drivers can plan ahead - helping deliver quicker, more efficient and safer journeys.

Councils across England will have until 30 September to apply for the funding. For full details, click here.
