MARR has brought the area big business bucks

THE MARR road has brought more than £480m investment and 2,510 jobs to Mansfield and Ashfield since it opened, it has been revealed.

Regeneration body the Sherwood Growth Zone Partnership says the road has attracted major new developments to the area, including 350m on the King's Mill Hospital development and 96m for building a new state-of-the-art base for West Notts College.

Said Tom Rawsterne, co-ordinator of the Sherwood Growth Zone Partnership: "Population growth in this area is the second slowest in the East Midlands. Growth can only be achieved by increasing the number and quality of houses and jobs to attract people in.
