On 20 November 2019, James hosted Grant Shapps, Secretary of State for Transport, following campaigning to stop the expressway proposals and ask that Government instead focus investment in pre-existing roads, like the A34, as well as in East/West rail and cycling facilities. Here’s what he had to say ?? ?? ?? ?? ??
This only happened because so many of you (just over 1000) responded to our survey asking for your views on the expressway plans. This feedback was shared with Grant’s team – and was critical in convincing the Government to change their position.
Thank you again for your help in making this happen!
