£198m PFI approved for Hounslow

Houslow has won a sizeable piece of funding for road improvement as part of a £1.2bn package just announced. The funding will allow upgrading and improvement of the Borough’s roads over the next 25 years.

The London Borough of Hounslow scheme consists of approximately 450 km of road made up of principal roads, non-principal roads and unclassified roads as well as 16,000 street lights.

The Council are now drawing up an Outline Business Case, with work scheduled to start in 2011.

"Better quality roads mean safer and quicker journeys for local people – this new funding will benefit all road users, whether they are motorists, bus users, pedestrians or cyclists," said Transport Minister Rosie Winterton.

"Communities with better roads also attract significant new investment, helping to boost local economies," she said.
