Transport for the North (TfN) has already received up to £12.5m for development work, £8.5 million of which has been provided by the Department for Transport and up to £4 million of which has been provided from the members of TfN. As the Chancellor announced in the Budget, TfN will receive an additional £10 million of funding in 2015-16 and a further £10 million in each of 2016-17 and 2017-18. Further discussions on funding will be taken in due course.
