Bath MP Wera Hobhouse has called on Secretary of State for Transport Grant Shapps to hold a meeting with all MPs in the Western Gateway Transport Board.
The meeting would discuss upgrading the A350, removing the A36/A46 from the primary road network, and directing A4, Bristol-bound traffic to the A420.
Wera Hobhouse said: “Cleveland Bridge matters to everyone in the city of Bath. We have a duty to preserve this Grade 2 * historical asset, and in order to preserve it, we have to find a way to get the heaviest vehicles off it.
“Many constituents have written to me about this important issue and I have met with some of them to discuss their concerns in more detail.
“Everyone in Bath would breathe a huge sigh of relief if we could get these heavy 40 tonne vehicles out of our city.
“I look forward to following up with the Secretary of State for Transport and will continue to press for a meeting with my relevant Parliamentary colleagues on this important issue.”
