Andrew has received a response to his letter to the Department for Transport about its study into linking the M4 to the south coast. In his response, transport minister Guy Opperman MP says that he is still awaiting National Highways’ recommendations to inform the next 5-year road investment strategy.
‘Westbury needs a western bypass urgently. The M4-Dorset Coast Study is central to achieving it. I hope we will have some positive news shortly but share my constituents’ frustration of the time National Highways is taking to conclude its report.’
Andrew has requested a meeting with Mr Opperman to discuss the study and Westbury’s long overdue bypass.
