Dr Dan fights on behalf of local residents for A12 Four Villages Bypass

Dr Dan with residents campaigning for a new A12 Four Villages bypassDr Dan continued his campaign for a new A12 Bypass to be built for the villages of Farnham, Stratford St Andrew, Little Glemham and Marlesford at a productive meeting with Suffolk MP colleague Therese Coffey, local councillors and residents.

Since the first proposed bypass was deferred in 1996, traffic levels have increased and the A12 through the four villages currently now has more than 18,000 vehicles travelling along it every day. This has made the current Ipswich-to-Lowestoft main road more dangerous, whilst at times badly affecting the quality of life for local residents. The proposed construction of a new nuclear power plant by EDF Energy at Sizewell could now provide a valuable opportunity to secure the level of funding required to deliver a much-needed by-pass for four A12 villages along with other road improvements and community infrastructure benefits. The preferred route of a bypass would be from the Wickham Market bypass to the Friday Street junction at Benhall, cutting out the notorious bend at Farnham.

Building a new bypass for the four villages will not only enhance the quality of life for residents in Farnham, Stratford St Andrew, Little Glemham and Marlesford, but will also bring benefits for many local communities and improve the Suffolk economy, and Dan will working hard alongside his Suffolk MP colleagues to deliver this vital project.
