South Gloucestershire Council leaders welcome M49 junction boost

Government plans to invest in a new M49 junction will unlock the economic potential of the Avonmouth Severnside Enterprise Area by providing strategic motorway access to Severnside. This junction boost will have the potential of creating thousands of new jobs.

Chair of South Gloucestershire’s Planning, Transportation & Strategic Environment committee Cllr Brian Allinson said: “This is extremely good news for South Gloucestershire and the West of England. Severnside has enormous scope for job creation and economic development but it has always needed a motorway junction to help unlock its true potential. So I’m delighted with today’s announcement and look forward to seeing the Enterprise Area grow and prosper in the coming years.”
