With the assistance of residents in leafleting and pledging to take up the scheme I have delivered GIGABIT FIBRE.


Starting in April 2021 I held a first meeting with Openreach and just over 2 years later we have Gigabit Fibre in Wanborough and Liddington with the final parts now being completed. Foxhill couldn't be included but a bid is in for further Government funding and I will know more about this in the summer of 2024.




The £40m Southern Connector Road - is effectively a bypass for Wanborough to allow an estimated 1/3rd of the traffic from the 8,000 home 'New Eastern Villages' develoment to get to Commonhead roundabout and the M4 without connecting via Wanborough. Opening 2024.


Looking back at my election leaflet in 2016,

I promised to help deliver this 'bypass' - three years later in 2019 it looks like I will have achieved that promise with construction due to start Winter 2020 and complete 2023.


As the Ridgeway Ward Councillor I know this is a fantastic help in minimising 'rat running'. I am now also the Cabinet Member for Strategic Planning and I also recognised that this is a great advantage in bringing forward development. 


This is a £40m road to be delivered at no cost to Swindon residents.
