29 Aug Local Conservatives deliver A444 Investment for Nuneaton
Conservatives at Warwickshire County Council have secured £4.27 million investment to upgrade the A444 along with Bull Ring, College Street and Heath End Road junctions.
The funding, which has been agreed with Conservative support at Full Council, will see the works delivered in the year 2018-19, as part of a second phase of A444 upgrades and will enable cycle connectivity to the Coton scheme which is expected to commence shortly.
Cllr Clare Golby, Arbury representative at Shire Hall said:
“These works are essential to help enable residents to better access all areas of Arbury and Stockingford, and improve the flow of traffic in an already congested area. It is vital for the future prosperity of Nuneaton and Arbury that the western and central areas of Nuneaton have an upgraded highway network at this important part of the road system.
“I very much welcome the Conservative controlled Warwickshire County Council’s commitment to invest in Arbury on this project. This recognises the importance of Nuneaton in the highway network. Going forward, it is essential with all of the proposed development by the Labour Borough Plan locally that Arbury is recognised as needing this critical investment. At the moment, it is only the Conservatives at Shire Hall who are focussed on delivering better infrastructure in Nuneaton and Bedworth.”
The investment in Nuneaton was also welcomed by the Transport Portfolio Holder, Cllr Jeff Clarke:
“As Portfolio Holder for Transport and Environment I am determined to see that Nuneaton gets its share of much needed investment in our local highway network. Hopefully, this will see the start of continued highway improvements to ensure good access to all areas across Nuneaton is delivered for a better future.”
