Campaigners are heading to Westminster to appeal for £150 million to improve the A14 in Suffolk.
The No More Delays campaign wants investment for seven pinch points along the road to reduce congestion and unlock economic growth.
- Improving the seven pinch points would cost £150million
- The work would reduce travel delays by 15 minutes
- It would create 5,000 jobs during construction
- Unlock the building of around 35,000 new homes
The A14 in Suffolk is a key trade route connecting the Port of Felixstowe to the wider region.
The Department for Transport will make a final decision on which road projects get extra funding.
Mark Pendlington, chair of the A14 strategy board said: “The A14 in Suffolk is a vital part of Britain’s Premier Trade route, but is clearly not fit for the needs of our fast-growing economy.
“We have known from the outset that a comparatively modest investment would deliver significant benefits for the national economy, and give Suffolk and the East of England the boost it needs to compete and win in the post Brexit international marketplace."
