Don Foster MP has welcomed the news that government funding for the Bath Transport Package has been approved.

Earlier this year, Don brought Liberal Democrat Transport Minister, Norman Baker MP to see Bath and to discuss the package with members of the Liberal Democrat Council Cabinet.

Don also met the Minister a number of times in Westminster to discuss the merits of the Bath Transport Package.

Approval of the Bath Transportation Package will bring a £34.3 million investment in transport infrastructure that will tackle the city’s current and future traffic problems and support the economic growth of the city.

Commenting, Foster said:

“The delivery of the Bath Transport Package shows just how well Liberal Democrats running the Council are working with Liberal Democrats in government.

“As a result of effective engagement between Lib Dems in government at both a local and national level, Bath will now benefit from significant transport improvements and a boost to the economic growth of the city. I’d like to congratulate the Liberal Democrat Council in delivering this key aspect of their manifesto”
