Catherine said, "the busy traffic on the M25 causes huge problems for local residents."

"Their towns and villages suffer from congestion, exhaust pollution and noise pollution."

" A careful design for new slip roads at junction 5 would help to reduce all of these problems . I want to help local communities to find the best solution to their road nightmare ."

"The M25 is a crucial part of the area's transport infrastructure, but we need to make sure any negative impact upon local communities is minimal."
