Transport Minister Huw Merriman MP has approved The A417 Missing Link – an important landscape-led road project that will improve road safety, reduce traffic congestion, and improve connectivity for road users and local communities, while unlocking economic growth in Gloucestershire and beyond.
This long-awaited decision means National Highways can now take action to improve this much needed stretch of road. Construction of the A417 Missing Link will begin in 2023.
Between 22 – 25 November, the project team will be out and about in National Highways’ mobile exhibition van and ready to answer any questions local people may have. Dates, times and locations are as follows:
• Tuesday 22 November 2022, 11am – 4pm, The Royal George Hotel, Birdlip, GL4 8JH
