MPs and Councillors secure urgent resurfacing works n M5

After complaints of excessive noise pollution from local residents close to Junctions 11A and 12 of the M5, Gloucestershire’s national and local representatives have worked together to secure agreement from the government to resurface part of the M5.

The MPs for Gloucester, Stroud and Tewkesbury have worked with Councillors Keith Pearson and Andrew Gravells and Road Minister John Hayes MP on bringing forward the work a full year earlier than expected, starting in March 2017.

Laurence Robertson, MP for Tewkesbury, said “There have been complaints about the level of noise coming off this stretch of road for a long time now, and I’m pleased that, working together, we have been able to make progress towards ending it.”
