Securing investment for Gloucestershire

Our ambition is to work with partners to attract the investment we need to deliver major infrastructure projects to support sustainable economic growth.

We will:

✔️ Support the delivery of major transport investment including:

- the upgrade to M5 Junction 10 in support of the delivery of future housing and employment growth;
- the A417 Missing Link to improve highway safety and remove a pinch-point within the strategic road network;
- improve capacity on Gloucester’s south-west bypass to improve travel within the city; and
- the West of Cheltenham Transport Infrastructure Scheme to enable delivery of Cyber Central.

✔️ Push ahead with delivering the Gloucestershire Sustainable Travel Corridor which includes new and upgrades to existing cycling routes and ambitious plans for a Mass Transit scheme linking Cheltenham and Gloucester.
✔️ Bid for funding to improve M5 Junction 9 and re-route the A46 away from Ashchurch to help deliver the Garden Town proposals.
✔️ Work with the Western Gateway Partnership to secure improved rail connections that support business and leisure needs.
✔️ Secure nationally important investment programmes for example the delivery of Cyber Central as part of the Golden Valley Development and bidding to host UK’s first Nuclear Fusion Power Plant to create improved employment opportunities for local people.
