M49 Junction is a real possibility as Government is asked for 18m

The government has been asked for £18m to fund a new junction on the M49 near Bristol and the Local Enterprise Area.

South Gloucestershire Council and the Local Enterprise Partnership say the new junction will improve access to the Avonmouth area.

The junction was set out in South Gloucestershire Council’s draft Core Strategy.

The two organisations believe it would help to open up more than 1,000 acres of land for development.
