We submitted two bids for a share of the government's £490m productivity investment fund in April 2017.

The funding bids, if successful, would be available to us over the next two financial years between 2018-19 and 2019-20.

Each local authority was allowed to make a maximum of two bids. The details of these bids can be found below.

West Harrogate scheme

The bid for this scheme was successful, and we are currently in the early stages of scoping out the project.

This scheme will provide a number of highway and safety improvements, mainly along the Otley Road corridor.

Northallerton scheme

Unfortunately, the bid for this scheme was unsuccessful.
