High Peak MP Andrew Bingham has welcomed an assurance from Prime Minister David Cameron that a future Conservative government will deliver Glossop’s long-awaited Spur Road.

The assurance came after Mr Bingham had the chance to ask a question at the last Prime Minster’s Question’s before Christmas.

Responding to Mr Bingham’s request for an assurance, Mr Cameron said: “I can certainly give that assurance. I know that he has campaigned tirelessly to improve roads in his High Peak constituency, and the trans-Pennine routes are vital.

“We can give that assurance because we have a long-term economic plan that is delivering the economic growth that we need and seeing our deficit come down. Because we have made that success, we can commit to these road schemes.”

Mr Bingham said: “I’m very pleased that the Prime Minister gave such an unequivocal assurance that, if elected in 2015, a Conservative government would deliver this.”
