Anne-Marie has changed Government’s mind on the importance of this forgotten stretch of road. Back on 2007 she set up the Dual the A1 Campaign Group in order to pull together many cross-party voices to make sure that Government would understand about the missing link in the A1 road network.
In December 2014, the then Prime Minister announced an initial £293m investment to upgrade the road.
Major planning work almost complete, route announcement for dualling to Ellingham due in the coming months. Extensive safety and route improvements north of Ellingham due to begin in 2018.
You can keep up to date with the project HERE.
In April 2017, Anne-Marie won the support of Transport Secretary Chris Grayling for her campaign to dual to the border.
