The construction of the North West Relief Road in Shrewsbury has been a long standing campaign for me ever since I became a member of Parliament. Not only will the road unlock large amounts of economic growth for the county bringing with it jobs, it will also reduce congestion both in small villages and the Town Centre. Many people in rural villages such as Bomere Heath are understandably unhappy that their village roads are being used as a rat run because of a lack of a North West Relief Road. Last year I persuaded the Government to provide £1 Million in funding to the Local Enterprise Partnership and Shropshire Council so that they could put together the business case for the road. In March 2019, we were successful in achieving £54m of investment for the North West Relief Road.
