25 March 2015

The following motion was passed by full council on 25 March 2015:


"This Council notes that the A417 Missing Link remains one of the worst bottlenecks on Gloucestershire's roads, and a continuing cause of serious accidents. 


This Council further notes the repeated cross party support from this Council, and from councils across Gloucestershire to addressing this issue. 


This Council welcomes the recent commitment from the Department for Transport, but also recognises that there will be much work to do to see the upgrade delivered - and the county's representatives in Westminster will have a crucial role to play in that. 


As such, this Council resolves to write to all candidates standing in Gloucestershire at the forthcoming General Election, giving them an opportunity to state their support for this crucial scheme, and to publish responses received."
