Anne Milton welcomes A3 Junction investment

The Secretary of State for Transport has published details of how £220 million will be spent to relieve congestion on the Strategic Road Network.  The schemes in this Congestion Relief Programme will be delivered quickly to relieve congestion, improve safety and help facilitate local development.  The list includes £1.6 million for improvements to the A3 Northbound off-slip road at the University interchange, and £2.5 million for the A3 Southbound off-slip road at the Stoke interchange.  Announcements for further schemes across the South East will be announced in detail later.

Anne said: "‘I am absolutely delighted that the Government continues to recognise the importance of Guildford and our need for better movement on our roads.  This new investment comes quickly on the heels of £12.5 million for town centre transport links and £7.5 million for the Slyfield Regeneration Project announced last month."

She added: "Along with Guildford Borough Council, I have lobbied for some years for local infrastructure improvements – now we need to add investment in our train services and rail capacity into London."
