“Ruth has similarly been a strong advocate for transport improvements in Rushcliffe, ensuring that our infrastructure plans benefit the entire region.

“On the 4th of July, the people of Gedling and Rushcliffe will face a significant choice.

“We can either choose to stick with Rishi Sunak and the Conservatives, who are executing a clear plan and taking bold actions to secure a stable future for you, your family, and Britain in an increasingly uncertain world.

“Or we can reject this path and revert to square one with Keir Starmer and Labour, who lack the conviction, courage, and plan necessary to navigate these uncertain times and secure a brighter future for our country.”

Tom Randall, Conservative MP for Gedling, added:

“It was a pleasure to host Mark Harper in Gedling and discuss the significant strides we’ve made in improving transport and connectivity in our region.

“Our efforts to repair potholes and enhance road quality have been a top priority, ensuring safer and smoother journeys for local people.

“I believe in the positive impact our policies are having, and I am dedicated to ensuring that Gedling remains on a path of progress and prosperity.

“The upcoming election on the 4th of July is crucial, and I urge the people of Gedling to support the Conservative vision for a secure and thriving future.”

Ruth Edwards, Conservative MP for Rushcliffe, said:

“I invited Mark Harper to Radcliffe-on-Trent to hear more about our campaign for more trains to stop at the station.

“I’m delighted that he is going to push the business case for this forward.

“Having good local transport links is vital, which is why I’ve been working with communities across Rushcliffe to improve local bus services and our roads.”
