For too long East Anglia hasn’t got its fair share when it comes to investment in transport infrastructure and Ipswich is proof of this. The northern relief road should have been delivered many years ago but hasn’t. I will make campaigning for a northern relief road a top priority. This would be a massive boost for Ipswich. I will be ambitious for Ipswich when it comes to battling for Government investment. In this year’s budget statement, I was pleased to see that that Government will be providing over £30 billion of additional investment for road infrastructure across the country.
I will make it my mission to secure some of this investment for the northern relief road. I also pledge to campaign for more affordable train travel to London from Ipswich.
