An extra £825,000 is to be ploughed into tackling congestion in the greater Bristol urban area.
The money was awarded by the Department for Transport after targets to ease congestion in the area were exceeded.
The average journey time in the area fell by 13% between 2006, when targets were set, and the year 2008/2009.
The money will be spent on further encouraging people to walk and cycle to work or take up public transport instead.
Work will also be carried out to improve junctions to help traffic flow and shorten bus journey times.
Funding began in 2007 and further funds will be available next year if the area continues to perform well.
The money goes to the West of England Partnership, which brings together councils in Bristol, South Gloucestershire, Bath and North East Somerset, and North Somerset.
