On Wednesday during Prime Minister’s questions, Henry Bellingham MP pressed the Prime Minister on future road funding for Norfolk. South West Norfolk MP Elizabeth Truss, along with other Norfolk MPs, has been maintaining the pressure on the government for future funding to upgrade the A47.
Elizabeth Truss MP said: “I am delighted that my colleague Henry Bellingham MP pressed the Prime Minister on future road funding in Norfolk. We have witnessed too many tragedies on our roads and I am keen to see funding allocated to ensure the A47 is fit for purposes. Money has already been committed to implement safety measures at Broadend Road Junction however more work needs to be done and I want to ensure the A47 can safely cope with the high volume of traffic. In the budget the chancellor announced that savings of £3 billion from government departments will be directed towards infrastructure. I will be maintaining the pressure on the government to ensure funding is made available for specific infrastructure projects like the A47.”
