Old A40 near Northleach

16th October 2018

Following concerted efforts by Sir Geoffrey Clifton-Brown MP, a proposal has been put forward by Gloucestershire Highways to open the old A40 near Northleach to traffic on one new lane near to the slippage area whilst the rest of the road will have two way traffic. The works will be carried out so that cars can start using the road next Spring.

Commenting on the news, the MP said:

“The news that funding to carry out the necessary repairs to enable the old A40 to be opened is excellent news for local motorists around the Northleach area. It has been closed for far too long and I am pleased that it will now be sorted out.”

How to raise an issue

Call 020 7219 5043 or email cliftonbrowng@parliament.uk if you wish to raise an important matter with me - but please check "What can an MP do for me?" in the section before making contact.

In some cases a face-to-face appointment/pre-arranged telephone call may be necessary in order to discuss and pursue matters personally.

However, I ask that all cases must first be raised with me in writing by letter or email.

Once initial enquiries have been made on your behalf then I will consider the best and most appropriate way forward in order to help you.


Many people think that their MP exists to solve all their problems for them: this is not the case.

MPs are there to legislate and help only with those matters for which Parliament or central government is responsible.

For many matters, the appropriate first step would be to contact your local Cotswold District or Gloucestershire County Councillor.
