Dualling the A1 is the road to growth for the North East

Following reports by the BBC that the cost to dual the A1 throughout Northumberland would come in at just under £600 million, UKIP’s North East MEP, Jonathan Arnott, said the following: “£600 million to dual the A1 is a price worth paying.Billions of pounds is set to be spent on the HS2 vanity project which would ultimately see just a few minutes shaved off for commuters, and quite possibly, even more work heading towards London from the North of England leaving our region worse off”.

“Dualling the A1 would be the road to growth for the North East. The road would undoubtedly make the region a much more attractive proposition for business, which is good for jobs and growth in the area”.
