I welcome the Government’s announcement that it is putting £3.4 million towards improving roads in the West of England, and in particular, that Scotland Lane, in Stockwood, is one of the roads scheduled for improvements.

I've been pressing the Council about this, and backed the bid for extra funding. I hope improvement work begins on this road, and others, very soon.
