The project will support both local housing and employment developments whilst also providing a key infrastructure requirement for the Warwick District Local Plan. The scheme will improve access to Jaguar Land Rover at Fen End and the nearby Warwick Parkway rail station.
CWLEP has been awarded over £131 million from the Local Growth Fund. This evaluation report focuses on the second year of Growth Deal delivery - 2016/17.
The projects include:
- A46 Expressway (M6 to M40) – A46 Link Road Phase 1
