Derek welcomes Labour's commitment to Mersey Gateway Bridge

12 Apr 2010

Derek has warmly welcomed the letter he received last week from Labour's Transport Secretary Lord Andrew Adonis stating that "further to your recent representations, I can confirm that Labour is committed to taking forward the Mersey Gateway Bridge, which offers considerable benefits for Merseyside and Cheshire."

Commenting on the news, Derek said:

"The Mersey Gateway Project is very important for the easing of congestion on the current Bridge.  It is also central to boosting local economic development, by creating and supporting 4-5,000 jobs after its completion, and hundreds of construction jobs whilst it is being built."
