The Road to prosperity - the reason the Western bypass is snarled up is because the Govt is improving it
It may not be the glamorous side of politics but I am deeply passionate about the Conservatives commitment to the biggest, boldest, most far-reaching road improvements in four decades.
Backing businesses with world-class infrastructure is a key part of our long-term economic plan for a stronger economy and a better future.
That’s why we’re investing £15 billion in over 100 improvements to our major roads, including hundreds of extra lane miles on our motorways and upgrades to some of our most important arteries – like the A1 Newcastle-Gateshead western bypass, and thwe A1 extension beyond Morpeth. We have also secured a feasibility study into dualing the A69 in the last Parliament, after a long campaign by local people, the Conservative councillor for Haltwhistle, myself and many more.
Our plans will be nothing less than a roads revolution – one that will lead to quicker journey times and businesses boosted right across the country.
