MP meets with Chancellor over 'Road to Nowhere' 

Luke Hall’s campaign to finish the so-called ‘Road to Nowhere’ in Yate has gone to Westminster. The MP wants a section of road that would have linked South Yate to Station Road to be finished, despite the project being abandoned in the 1970’s
Now Mr Hall has met the Chancellor, George Osborne, to discuss the project.  At a meeting at the Treasury, he pushed the case for investing in Yate and completing both the Road to Nowhere and Junction 18A, on the M4.
After the meeting, Mr Osborne, said:  “Luke has presented a strong and passionate case for investing in Yate’s infrastructure and completing the Road to Nowhere. I look forward to working with him to improve transport infrastructure in and around Yate.”
After the meeting Luke said; “The reception I’ve received from across the area, from residents who remember the road being abandoned in the 70’s, to those who have just moved into our community has been incredible. It is now even more encouraging that the Chancellor is interested in the project and believes a strong case has been made so far.”
