Improve local roads

Our local transport system is getting the improvements it needs for people to get to and from work, see loved ones and spend locally. So far, you will have seen that £4.5 million has been invested into building a new link road between the M181 and Scotter Road, easing congestion on Berkeley Circle. The work on the southern junction on the M181 and subsequent connection to Burringham road is expected to commence in autumn later this year, and the second roundabout should be underway as scheduled in early 2023 as well.

I continue to campaign for improvements to the A15 to improve safety. In addition, I continue to raise residents' experiences on public transport services so that the authorities are aware of the work that is needed.
