  1. Guidance

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

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