The first round of Growth Deals were announced on 7th July 2014. The first £6 billion of local projects were agreed. This included the complete allocation of £2 billion from the Local Growth Fund for 2015 to 2016, and in some cases commitments were given for following years for important long-term projects so they can get under way.
A number of schemes were announced that covered enhancements to the railway network and these are detailed on the following pages.
