57m road scheme for Coventry
A 57m road improvement scheme to improve safety and reduce congestion in Coventry has been announced by the government.

The money will be used to improve junctions at Tollbar End, in the city.

A new underpass will be built as well as a direct link from the A45 to Middlemarch Business Park and Coventry Airport

The improvements are part of a 775m package of road improvements focusing on major bottlenecks across the country.

Heavy traffic

Traffic lights were installed on the road several years ago to ease congestion.

Transport secretary Alistair Darling said it was part of a plan to deal with the most congested roads.

"We remain committed to tackling congestion and reducing the number of accidents on our roads.

"This package will deliver those benefits and provide welcome relief from heavy traffic for communities who live near busy roads."
