A417 Missing Link Update - February 2018

Dear A417 ‘Missing Link’ supporter

When I last wrote to you I mentioned that Highways England would be running a route options consultation early this year and I’m now delighted to let you know that the consultation will run from February 15 to March 29.

The consultation is being led by Highways England; you will get the chance to have your say on the shortlisted route options and I want as many people as possible to be able to take part.

This is a very important stage of the project to fix the A417 ‘Missing Link’ and although we need to keep the pressure on to make sure things continue to move forward, this is a key stage of the process to make sure our campaign becomes a reality.

The county council is supporting the consultation by hosting information points in some of our libraries and we will be making the plans available at Shire Hall.

There are a number of events taking place in the county, here you will be able to get information and speak to Highways England about the project and the consultation and I am listing these below.

Please get involved in this route options consultation, have your say and spread the word with family and friends and urge them to get involved. I want to send a loud message that as a county we are united in our determination to make sure that the A417 ‘Missing Link’ is consigned to history.

More information on the project can be found at www.a417missinglink.co.uk/.

Once the consultation opens on 15 February you will be able to take part by visiting Highways England’s website.

Leader, Gloucestershire County Council
