An extra £7m has been awarded by the Department for Transport (DfT) for the construction of two major road schemes in Taunton, Somerset.
The government's contribution to the Third Way and the Northern Inner Distributor Road (NIDR) is now £22m.
The Third Way will link Wellington Road and Bridge Street via a new bridge over the River Tone.
The NIDR will run from Priory Bridge over a redundant rail bridge to Staplegrove Road.
The remaining £8m required by the road schemes has been covered by identified developers' contributions.
Councillor Hazel Prior-Sankey said: "Since the go-ahead for these important schemes was given last summer, the government changed its funding arrangements.
"We are delighted that now the DfT fully understands how important the new roads are to a vibrant local economy and is prepared to fund the project more fully."
