Transport links are vital to businesses and residents in our area. That is why I have been working with a number of stakeholders to ensure we have the transport infrastructure we deserve.
Since being elected I have worked with Greater Anglia to improve rail services, both on the mainline and locally. I am delighted that the roll out of the new trains has begun, making journeys more comfortable and reliable for passengers.
I was also pleased that our campaigning for Access for All funding for Stowmarket Station was successful. This will improve accessibility to our trains for all passengers. I am continuing to support the campaign for Access for All funding for Needham Market Station.
Our roads are also an important part of the trade corridor, carrying goods to and from the Port of Felixstowe. I have chaired the campaign for investment in the A14 and continue to support the Suffolk Chamber of Commerce in their campaign to bring investment to solve the pinch points along the A14 in Suffolk. This will make journeys smoother and cut delays for all road users.
Locally, I often raise the importance of maintaining our roads with Suffolk County Council as potholes and road maintenance issues are often raised with me by constituents.
