Tackling Worcester's transport challenges

I was proud to announce £55 million of government funding approved for the upgrade of Southern Link Road as well as the full dualling of the Carrington Bridge which will help improve everyday journeys in and around Worcester, easing traffic for local people in Worcestershire and Herefordshire, as well as supporting thousands of new homes and jobs. Worcestershire Parkway Station will also mean passengers have much easier journeys.

This was a result of years of meetings, correspondence and campaigning, and is a real testament to how MPs can help shape their communities.

After years of campaigning, I was pleased to receive confirmation from Great Western Railways that trains on the route between Worcester and London will complete the journey in under two hours before the end of 2019.
