The government has announced £15.6M funding for construction of a new road in the North West.
Work on the Crewe Green Link Road will start immediately following the announcement.
The 1.1km dual carriageway will link the A500 to the A5020, passing under the Crewe-Stoke rail line.
Transport secretary Patrick McLoughlin said: “This scheme is great news for Crewe and will support the economic growth and regeneration of the town, including the All Change for Crewe strategy.
“The £15.6 million we are putting into this project shows that we are serious about investing in the infrastructure the country needs to drive economic growth, both locally and nationally.”
The scheme, which has a full cost of £26.4M, is scheduled for completion in November 2015.
