Fewer than 35% of planned local authority road schemes will go ahead next year after government cuts, reports The Yorkshire Post (p10).

Transport Secretary John MacGregor announced that 35 major local schemes will start in 1994-5 as he gave details of next year's funding. English local highway authorities will get just £894m compared with this financial year's £1047m - a cut of £153m.

Mr MacGregor also announced £50m for local road safety schemes; £114m in grants and borrowing approvals for public transport and increased support for cycling and pedestrianisation measures.
