De-trunking of the A69 campaign relaunch

A public meeting is taking place to relaunch a campaign to de-trunk the A69 road between Brampton and Carlisle.

Local MPs John Stevenson and Rory Stewart will attend the meeting in Warwick Bridge to add their weight to the campaign.

For decades there has been talk of de-trunking the road, which literally splits the communties of Corby Hill and Warwick Bridge.
