Improving Swindon Transport

As your local MP, I have worked to make transport in and around Swindon, safe, efficient and fast.

I will continue working hard to secure the continued investment in our town’s road network, such as the Thamesdown Drive extension.

My record so far:

  • I have helped to secure £16.5m of improvements to M4 Junctions 15 and 16, which will be delivered over the next few years.
  • I have pushed for £357,000 for pothole and road repairs in the last two years.
  • I have worked to secure funding for a new bus station, which will be delivered soon.
  • I helped to secure £7 billion for the modernisation and electrification of the Great Western Mainline and the redoubling of the Swindon to Kemble line.

The Conservative Government is undertaking the biggest modernisation programme for a generation to bring our roads into the 21st century and give people the safe and reliable journeys they expect. The Highways England road improvement schemes will create more than 3,000 homes for people in the south west and 6,000 jobs, giving a huge boost to the local economy.
