One of the first projects supported by the Marches LEP Growth Deal was the £17.4m Telford Growth Package, which had guaranteed funding for 2015-16 and 2016-17.
The Telford Growth Point Package, started in early 2016, involved amendments to a series of junctions located along the strategic highway network in Telford and on site infrastructure that will open up additional housing and employment sites at Muxton, Shawbirch and Hortonwood. The investment is expected to help deliver approximately 5,400 jobs and 2,800 houses.
The package is also supported by sustainable transport improvements across the Borough enhancing the cycle network providing linkages into the key employment areas.
The six key junctions identified are:
- Trench Lock Interchange
- Clock Tower Roundabout
- Shawbirch Roundabout
- Ketley Brook Roundabout
- Limekiln Roundabout
- Randlay Interchange
