Government asked for £18m for new M49 junction
The government has been asked for £18m to fund a new junction on the M49 near Bristol.
South Gloucestershire Council and the Local Enterprise Partnership say the new junction will improve access to the Avonmouth area.
The junction was set out in South Gloucestershire Council's draft Core Strategy.
The two organisations believe it would help to open up more than 1,000 acres of land for development.
