A Very Light Rail scheme for Coventry is amongst a £1.3bn list of 50 West Midlands preferred transport schemes, the majority of which are being funded via the Government’s City Region Sustainable Transport Settlement (CRSTS) pot of money. 

The West Midlands will receive £1.05bn from CRSTS, with the remainder coming from local sources. The list of schemes will now be submitted to the DfT for final approval, after which a full list of schemes will be published.
