After years of delays from the Highways Agency, Eastleigh MP Mike Thornton, Prospective Winchester and Chandler's Ford MP Jackie Porter, and the Lib Dem team across the county are pressing for action to deal with motorway noise.
Mike has gone right to the top and has asked the Treasury to look at releasing extra funding to sort out road resurfacing for the M3 and M27.
Mike wants the Department of Transport and the Highways Agency to honour a long-standing commitment for a quieter road surface, after plans were delayed as a result of sorting out the financial mess left by the last Labour Government.
Government noise maps recognise that motorway road noise through Eastleigh Borough and Chandler's Ford and around north-east Winchester, and on the southern end of the A34, is amongst the worst in the country.
MP Mike Thornton said, "From Bursledon through to Hedge End and West End, and then right up to Eastleigh and Allbrook and beyond, this is problem that impacts on the daily lives of thousands of local residents. I will be fighting for proper steps to be taken and a clear binding timetable for action."
