Caerphilly gains further investment with transport grant
Hundreds of thousands of pounds will be invested into Caerphilly’s roads.
The Labour Welsh Government revealed today that more than £11million of additional funding has been made available for the Transport Grant Settlement 2012-13.
Of that £668,000 will go to the Greater Bargoed Community Regeneration Road Scheme and £99,000 being awarded towards improvements of the Ysbyty Ystrad Fawr Highway.
Jeff Cuthbert AM said he was delighted with further investment in the area.
“March has been a very good month for the Caerphilly constituency with the area being awarded over a million of Welsh Government funding for grants to improve transport, libraries and community centres to name a few.
“I’m extremely pleased to see this further investment which compliments the new hospital and Bargoed regeneration, both of which were also Welsh Government funded initiatives,” he added.
Minister for Local Government and Communities Carl Sargent said: “It is important that schemes progress and are completed in order to assist with our broader strategic objectives of economic regeneration through stimulation of the local economy.
