A417 ‘Triumph for County Infrastructure’

After a long campaign to resolve the A417 Missing Link the government have announced that it will be resolved in the next Parliament.

This is a major government commitment to the single most important, and expensive, piece of transport infrastructure needed in our county.

This is a success above all for unity of purpose and goal across the county and beyond. Only one MP was against the plan and fortunately that was not enough to damage a very strong case. This will reduce accidents, deaths, traffic jams, carbon emissions and journey times and increase productivity, visitors, trade and investment.
