MP urges local people to comment on Carrington Road bridge plan

4th July 2017

West Worcestershire MP Harriett Baldwin has urged local people to have their say on the long-awaited plans to double the Carrington Road bridge and improve the link road west of Worcester.

The project will deliver a new bridge span over the river Severn and extra carriage way dualling as well as improved cycle lanes.

A bid for £70 million is currently being considered by the Department for Transport but the plans have been release to the public to allow local people to comment on the plans.

Harriett, who has been lobbying for the road since she was first elected to Parliament in 2010, visited the public exhibition in Malvern where the plans were put on display.

Worcestershire County Council is asking people to look at the plans and comment on the proposals through a dedicated email address wts@worcestershire.gov.uk.

Harriett said: “I have been a vigorous supporter of this project which will reduce journey times for local commuters and reduce some of the serious traffic pinch-points which affect road-users at all times of the day.

“I have written to a succession of Transport Secretaries in support of this bid and hope that we will hear some positive news very soon.

“I will be interested to see more detail on the plan and particularly welcome the plans for improved cycle routes which will mean more people can travel safely to and from the Malvern Hills and beyond.

“I do urge people to have a look themselves and make sure that the plans are fully-scrutinised so we get a road improvement project which we can all support.”
