Securing Better Transport

A11 Fiveways: I have worked hard to address the safety concerns at the A11 Fiveways roundabout. New road markings have been painted and signage has been installed and there will be an investigation and analysis as to how to further improve safety by means of traffic light signaling.

Newmarket Railway: I have conducted a survey amongst Newmarket residents to find out what improvements they would like to see at Newmarket Railway. Over 400 replies were received and the findings of the survey have been presented to the Department of Transport. During the summer, Abellio was named the preferred bidder of the new East Anglia rail franchise.  They have pledged to increase the number of morning seats by 55%, which was the number one ask from my Newmarket constituents who responded to my survey.

A1307: I have pushed for the dualling of the A1307 and the campaign to do so was launched in October 2015. It is consistently raised with me as one of the biggest issues for the town. The issue of the A1307 has been raised with the Minister of State at the Department for Transport and a funded report on traffic flows on the A1307 as has been asked for.
