A MAJOR route out of Uttoxeter has been named in the Goverment's infrastructure spending plans for the next two decades.
The National Infrastructure Plan (NIP) will provide funding for enhancements to the A50 around Uttoxeter to start no later than 2015 to 2016.
The funds will go towards making the A50 safer, and cutting traffic back-log around Uttoxeter.
The funding is part of a national £375 billion investment to be allocated towards energy, transport, communications and water projects across the UK.
Keep posted for updates throughout the day.
