A1 north of Morpeth
I don’t suppose you saw it but I have recently written in a Journal column for the dualling of the A1 to be given the highest priority for investment in the whole North East region on the grounds of road safety, economic development and the poor image of Northumberland that the current wholly inadequate state of the road presents to a million people using it.
I also urged people to contact their elected representatives to urge them to set aside party politics and any local interests to work together on this fundamental strategic issue in the interests of the North East.
You will have far more knowledge and experience of this issue than me. I write only to share my concern, ask you to let me know what you are currently doing about this matter and request that you keep me informed about any developments and representations you are making.
