Fight to tackle congestion

Fighting to tackle congestion: Chris will work in government and with local organisations to find solutions to ongoing problems with congestion.  This will include campaigning for the Westhoughton Bypass to be built, the creation of a junction 7 on the M61 and greater investment in our railways.

Alongside these campaigns, Chris has also fought for improved walking routes and cycling links for the constituency and believes that these improvements will reduce the need for car use. After Chris raised this matter in an important Westminster debate on this matter, plans for cycleways and walking routes were announced for the Horwich Loco Works. These plans also support Chris’ consistent campaigning for accessible and good public transport routes, which will not only reduce congestion, but also reduce emissions.
