Peterborough Cash To Help RNIB Visitors
The Government has awarded £4m for tech projects to help cut congestion, speed up journeys and clean up the environment - with three projects in the East of England getting a total of £298,000.
Nineteen councils across England will receive between £50,000 and £300,000 each for their ideas to improve journeys through digital innovation.
The government money will be spent on developing cutting edge technology such as apps and sensors which can be used to cut congestion, improve parking in city centres and alert drivers when electric car charging points become available.
Roads Minister Andrew Jones, said:
"I congratulate today’s winners for coming up with cutting-edge, innovative ideas that will transform journeys for passengers and motorists across the country. Technology is rapidly evolving and this important work shows that if we get it right, it can cut congestion, speed up journeys, clean up the environment, and improve accessibility."
