I have been campaigning alongside local residents and Councillors for an M4 Link Road at Emersons Green since I was first elected as the local MP for Kingswood in 2010. During that time I have consistently argued the reasons why a link road should be built and why that road should be built in Emersons Green. I have no doubt Junction 18A will help to ease congestion currently faced by local residents and will bring with it further business and investment into our area. That is why I worked so hard to secure the £500,000 needed from Government for this study.
I do, however, object to any proposal which sees the Link Road built through Pucklechurch. It makes no sense to build through the Green Belt here when there are areas of land behind the Bristol and Bath Science Park, or at the Willy Wicket junction, where the ring road and the M4 are already effectively touching. If you would like to sign my petition against these proposals then please click below.
If you have any difficulty signing then please call my office on 01179081524 who will be happy to help.
With all best wishes,
Chris Skidmore MP and Luke Hall MP
