Gedling MP writes to new mayor to set out borough’s transport priorities

Earlier this month the first Mayor of the East Midlands was elected with a £1.5 billion transport fund and Tom Randall MP has today written to her to set out two of Gedling’s transport priorities – a fourth Trent crossing at Colwick and fixing Gedling’s roads with more resurfacing works.

In the letter sent to the Mayor from Tom Randall MP, Tom says a fourth Trent crossing at Colwick will ‘relieve traffic pressure in places such as Netherfield, Colwick and Burton Joyce’ along with Gedling village and Stoke Bardolph while ‘increasing connectivity to the eastern part of Greater Nottingham’ – providing ‘better access to local jobs’ for residents across Gedling.

The letter from Tom Randall MP then goes on to highlight the priority of fixing Gedling’s roads using funding from the new Mayor’s transport fund, with Tom writing that he looks forward to ‘hearing what steps’ the Mayor proposes to take to help fix Gedling’s roads after her campaign pledge to ‘invest in quality road resurfacing’.

After sending the letter requesting that part of the Mayor’s £1.5 billion new transport fund is spent on fixing Gedling’s roads and progressing plans for a fourth Trent crossing in Colwick, Tom Randall MP said: “Both of these transport priorities can be addressed with funding from our Mayor’s £1.5 billion transport fund and I look forward to working with the Mayor on progressing them.”
