A47: Improvements Debated In The Commons
A debate has been held in the House of Commons on the ‘upgrading and dualling of the A47’.
The debate, called by Norfolk MP George Freeman, was a chance for MPs to put the case for long term improvements to the A47 to Transport Minister Stephen Hammond.
The debate follows on from a meeting held at the Department for Transport in December.
Great Yarmouth MP said: “I was very pleased to be able to attend such an important debate for Great Yarmouth. The debate follows on from a concerted campaign by myself and colleagues since 2010 to try to secure improvements for the A47. We have already secured funding for ‘pinch points’ on the road and now is the chance to push our long term plans to unlock the economic benefits that the A47 holds. The Department for Transport have been encouraging in recent months and I hope it will not be long for improvements to begin.”
