ASSOCIATION OF GLOUCESTERSHIRE CHAMBERS & BUSINESS GROUPS SUPPORTS THE CAMPAIGN TO ‘FILL THE MISSING LINK’

The newly formed Association of Gloucestershire Chambers & Business Groups is throwing its weight behind the campaign to ‘Fill the Missing Link’

“It is astounding that the ‘Air Balloon’ roundabout has been allowed to remain a bottleneck and the location of so many accidents, including fatalities for so many years” commented Michael Ratcliffe, Chair of the Association of Gloucestershire Chamber & Business Groups “Gloucestershire businesses and residents have been asking for a solution to this problem for over 20 years and we need action now!”

“The bid for £250 million of Government funding to build the A417 loop has the full support of the Association and we call on all Gloucestershire MPs. MEPs and local authorities to publically declare their support for this bid” commented Jon Leamon, Deputy Chief Executive of Cheltenham Chamber of Commerce “We must remember that over the last 15 years there have been more than 340 casualties following incidents on this route including 3 fatalities before Christmas near the Air Balloon roundabout.”
