Shrewsbury MP welcomes investment in infrastructure to boost jobs and give people security

Daniel Kawczynski, MP for Shrewsbury & Atcham has welcomed the announcement from the Prime Minister and the Chancellor that there will be £36 billion invested in more than 200 infrastructure projects this year.

This investment will particularly benefit Shrewsbury with pinch point schemes on the A49 and improvements to Emstrey Island on the A5, helping to create the jobs that provide people with stability and security.

Commenting, Daniel said:

Highways Agency agrees to make changes at Edgebold roundabout.

The Highways Agency has confirmed to Shrewsbury MP Daniel Kawczynksi they are revising the design at the Edgebold roundabout where the A488 meets the A5 over the coming nights.

The Agency has only recently completed a road widening scheme at the roundabout, which involved changing the road markings. However this led to a large amount of congestion as the road markings designated the left hand lane as left turn only this caused tailbacks in the right hand lane.
