This government is committed to ensuring that every part of the country has modern and efficient infrastructure, and public investment is set to reach levels not consistently sustained in 40 years.

Access to Superfast Broadband in North Herefordshire has risen from 12% to 81% of premises since 2010, supported by the government’s Superfast Broadband programme.

The routes around Herefordshire’s Enterprise Zone have received £5 million of investment from the Local Maintenance Highways Challenge Fund. This work has provided improvements to almost 40 miles of road. The new West Midlands Trains rail franchise is due to provide 400 new carriages by 2021.

Decisions on future infrastructure funding will be made at the Spending Review.
