RORY STEWART MP ON A66 DUALLING

"The launch of this consultation is great news - and I hope that people make full use of this opportunity to get their views heard. I have long championed the dualling of the A66 - from Scotch Corner through to Cumbria - and I have pushed hard to ensure that the strategic importance of this stretch of road is recognised in Government. Now we need to drive the dualling forward - not only to bring economic and transport benefits but also - most importantly - to help improve the safety of motorists on this key route."
