The new A11 bypass is officially open

It was absolutely fantastic to open officially the new A11 bypass on time and on budget today. Since 1935 people have been talking about a dual carriageway all the way from London to Norwich. Now it is a reality. This is an enormous moment for Suffolk and Norfolk. It will make a huge difference to the lives of the thousands who live on the route, and the millions who drive along it. It shows this Government is investing in East Anglia and that when this Government makes promises of better infrastructure, it delivers.
