Improving Infrastructure

HS2: Local residents have expressed concerns about the impact of HS2. I welcome the recent news that the Government is currently reviewing the project. I have visited affected villages for the proposed route, from Hopton to the Haywards, and met with the Department of Transport. I have met with the Secretary of State, and his team, to raise your concerns in person and plan to write to the Chairs of the new Review.

Western Access Road: The planned road will provide an essential link between the north and west of Stafford that will help ease congestion in the town centre. This is a positive step essential for the successful development of additional land for use as homes and businesses. I will work with our County Councillors to ensure that this project is delivered with minimal detrimental impact on Stafford's residents such as unnecessary road closures. 

Superfast broadband: The government have announced plans for super-fast broadband to be rolled out across the UK. Ensuring that Stafford gets its fair share of this investment is vital and I will campaign to secure it.
