A46 NEWARK BYPASS - LET'S GET ON WITH IT!

Media Release from EMC & TfEM 

30th September 2019

A46 NEWARK BYPASS - LET'S GET ON WITH IT!

East Midlands Councils and Transport for East Midlands (TfEM) strongly welcomed today's announcement by the Chancellor to fund the Newark Northern Bypass announced at today's Conservative Party Conference. The scheme has been the region's top strategic road priority for some time - and features in our joint TfEM/Midlands Connect prospectus published last year http://bit.ly/2n4pDFn

Cllr Martin Hill OBE, Chairman of East Midlands Councils said: "I strongly welcome today's announcement by the Chancellor. The A46 Newark northern bypass will improve connectivity across Leicestershire, Nottinghamshire and Lincolnshire and unlock much needed new jobs and homes. It has been the region's top strategic road investment priority for some time - and the vital first part of our longer term strategy for the A46 growth corridor. It must be delivered in full by 2025"

ENDS
