Norfolk: MPs Take A47 Fight To Government

MPs and Councillors from across Norfolk are taking their campaign to improve the A47 to the Transport Minister later.

Plans to dual the last parts of the A47 and improve the roundabouts and junctions were revealed in November.  Now MPs and Norfolk's County Councillors are trying to persuade the government to put up the money for the project.

Finishing all the work planned would cost £500million.  But local politicians have put together a business case and say the improvements could create 10,000 new jobs, bring in private investment of more than £800m and cut journey times from one end to the other by 30 minutes.

Most of the MPs who's constituencies are affected are going to make their case including: Brandon Lewis MP, George Freeman MP, Keith Simpson MP, Chloe Smith MP, Henry Bellingham MP and David Cummings, Graham Plant, Mike Jackson from Norfolk County Council.
