The Deputy Prime Minister Nick Clegg has been discussing proposals to improve the A303 to the West country at a meeting with business leaders and councillors in Somerset.
He gave strong hints that money for the scheme would be announced in the Chancellor of the Exchequer's Autumn Statement next month.
I am absolutely determined that we should finally fix this. We haven't crossed the T's and dotted the I's yet on the announcement that will be made in the Autumn Statement in early December but, how can I put it, if there isn't an announcement to improve the A303 in the Autumn Statement, I'll come down here and start tarmacking it myself!
