The Broadland MP has welcomed news that the government is considering giving extra funding to improve the A47 in Norfolk.
The road, which links Great Yarmouth to the Midlands, has been the scene of a number of road accidents.
Keith Simpson said Norfolk MPs has met the Roads Minister before Christmas to press the case for improvements to the A47.
Mr Simpson said: "He pretty well indicated that we were going to be high up on the priority list. I think the announcement today of more money and that the Department of Transport have named the A47 is a good indication. But nothing is set until we actually see the colour of the money."
