MP praises green light for A11 dualling



Commenting on the Government's decision to dual the remaining single carriage stretch of the A11, South Norfolk MP Richard Bacon said:

“I am absolutely delighted that the Coalition Government has confirmed that the final single-carriageway stretch of the A11 will be dualled at last. 

“This decision will put Norfolk in prime position to deliver strong economic growth in the years to come.

“The single-carriage bottleneck between Barton Mills and Thetford has been slowly choking the economic life from our county but the previous government left the job of dualling the A11 unfinished, despite 13 years of massive public expenditure. 

“The Government has accepted the overwhelming case for the benefits of dualling the A11 and will finally finish the job”.
