North Devon Link Road funding bid

18th December 2017

On Monday 18 December, Geoffrey Cox QC and Peter Heaton Jones, MPs for Torridge & West Devon and North Devon were joined by the Cllr Jane Whittaker (Leader of Torridge District Council), Cllr Pat Barker (Deputy Leader of the North Devon District Council) and Cllr Andrea Davis (Cabinet Member for Infrastructure, Devon County Council) at a meeting with the Secretary of State for Transport to present the North Devon Link Road funding bid.

Geoffrey Cox QC MP commented,   

“The North Devon Link Road is an essential and important connection between the South West and the rest of the country. I believe the case for further investment in the Link road is clear: these improvements will not only make a major contribution to driver safety and reduce journey times but will boost local growth and investment in the area by providing easier and safer access. These changes are vital to helping improve the economy of North Devon and the wider region.”
