Lorely Burt, MP for Solihull, has welcomed the announcement of plans for the ‘M42 Economic Gateway’.
“This project will create 100,000 jobs with an estimated 63,000 in Solihull. Still in its planning stages, this project will be of great value to Solihull giving the local economy an estimated £5 billion boost.”
