Government Commits Funding for A12 Major Road Network Scheme - A Milestone for Suffolk's Connectivity and Economic Growth
The UK government has made an official commitment to provide funding for a comprehensive range of enhancements, marking a significant milestone in the development of Suffolk County Council's A12 Major Road Network scheme.
While we await further details about the funding, this is a momentous occasion for our region, representing a significant step forward for a project championed by Suffolk Chamber of Commerce over the years.
Suffolk County Council and other partners should be applauded for getting the project to this stage. Once completed, this A12 project will help boost the more efficient movement of goods and people along the East coast and should further improve the attractiveness of this part of Suffolk to companies looking to relocate and increase their footprint in the county.
John Dugmore, Chief Executive of Suffolk Chamber of Commerce, said;
“This cannot be the end of our asks for improved connectivity in better linking Suffolk to the rest of the country, including upgrades to other road, rail and 5G infrastructure. Suffolk Chamber is continuing to lead the charge in securing improvements to Copdock Interchange by trying to persuade the Department for Transport to advance the project sooner rather than later.
For the most recent updates on this promising development, we invite you to read the full article on 'Government backs A12 road improvements with funding commitment'.
The future of Suffolk's connectivity is bright, and together, we are actively shaping it to benefit our region and the broader business community. Stay tuned for further updates from your Chamber that will continue to help enhance Suffolk's economic growth and connectivity.
