The UK’s Extraordinary Imbalance in Transport Expenditure
When it comes to funding for transportation projects in the United Kingdom, there is a massive disparity between London and other regions in England. Spending per head of the English population on transport infrastructure has reached £2,595 in London. In comparison, the next highest region is the South East with £714.
The North East has just £5 per head. The situation has now reached the point where eight other cities across England have started working together in order to fight what they consider the capital’s unfair share of the transport budget.
This chart shows spending per head of the English population on transport infrastructure by region.
