More than £83m has been spent on road and public transport schemes in Northumberland in the past five years.
Highway chiefs at Northumberland County Council undertook a transport plan in 2001 to improve access to services and jobs and support communities.
Since then £83m has been spent on nearly 1,900 schemes in the county.
These include road repairs and safety work, improvements to unclassified roads, and measures aimed at pedestrians and cyclists.
There are more than 5,000 kms (3,106 miles) of highway and almost 2,300 highway structures in Northumberland.
David Laux, divisional director of highways and transportation, said: "We have invested heavily in maintenance of roads and bridges, helped develop road links and bus interchanges, and have improved road safety for drivers, pedestrians and children.
"We have lots of different ways to achieve these aims, from complex engineering to working with groups of young children to teach them about road safety."
