Greg Smith, MP for Buckingham, comments: “It was a pleasure to visit Kingsbrook today, and to officially open the Eastern Link Road, which will reduce traffic through Bierton and allow additional public transport routes to run.”

Housebuilder Barratt David Wilson Homes contributed to the funding for the new traffic system.

Councillor Steve Broadbent added: “This new road forms part of the Council’s long-term vision for a series of link roads around Aylesbury to support the wider regeneration of the town centre, help drive our economic growth and recovery in Buckinghamshire and generate employment opportunities. I would like to thank all those involved for everything they have done to deliver this important new link for Aylesbury.”

Kingsbrook Parish Council officials were also present at the opening.
