We, the undersigned, support the Gateway2Growth campaign and the call for a new Junction 18A to be built to link the M4 with Emersons Green.
Emersons Green is seeing strong growth in investment, jobs and housing. The Emersons Green Enterprise Area, for example, has been identified as a key area for economic growth over the next 12 years, with up to 7,000 jobs expected to be created.
It is crucial that South Gloucestershire has a road infrastructure to match the area’s ambitions for growth. Junction 18A will help to attract investment to the area, including for the Bristol and Bath Science Park, ease congestion on the strained local road network and reduce journey times for those commuting by car into Bristol from South Gloucestershire.
