Local Pinch Point Fund

The approved schemes that received funding from the Local Pinch Point Fund as part of the 4 tranches.

As part of the 2012 Autumn Statement the government announced the creation of a Local Pinch Point Fund worth £170 million. It was set up to remove bottlenecks on the local highway network which were impeding growth by restricting the movement of goods and people.

The fund was aimed at those schemes that can be delivered quickly with immediate impact. The Department for Transport’s funding contribution (in the form of capital) was only available in 2013 to 2014 and 2014 to 2015.
