Mr Heathcoat-Amory said: "My patience over the delay in completion of this stretch of road is now exhausted. When I have raised this with the county council in the past I found a complete lack of determination or interest and I now want answers.

"Anyone looking at the road map of the area with this incomplete section would conclude that it had been planned by lunatics. Money has been collected from developers which has not been spent on the road and meanwhile traffic congestion continues to increase on the roads linking Burnham and Highbridge."
