Ipswich MP Ben Gummer told Heart: 'We're working as a united front, all the MPs together, to try and get the capacity and speed improvements that we need.'
Norwich North MP Chloe Smith told Heart: 'What we want is an improvement right up and down the line and there are benefits that can be brought for all the areas by getting this right for the longterm.'
