Outwrite’s managing director Tracy North took part in a live interview on national radio to discuss plans for improvement works on the A55.

BBC Radio Wales invited Tracy, who is chair of CBI North Wales, to share her thoughts on the news that the Welsh Government has commissioned a study to explore potential work on the A55 North Wales highway.

The interview was broadcast as part of the Good Evening Wales show, which covers drive time news and sport every weekday from 4pm to 6:30pm.

Tracy welcomed the news of the study as a long time advocate for the improvement of infrastructure in Wales and the UK.

“It’s fantastic news that the A55 is being considered for improvements as it’s a vital network for North Wales’ businesses,” she said.

“Infrastructure is a significant issue for businesses everywhere in the UK, so I was pleased to give a voice for North Wales in the interview.

“I’ll be watching out for updates on the A55 study closely for the interests of both Outwrite and in my capacity as chair of CBI North Wales.

Tracy is a regular media commentator for business issues in Wales and writes a four-weekly guest column in the Daily Post’s business section.

She also appeared on BBC Wales Today’s six o’ clock news as a media representative for the expansion of Heathrow Airport, and featured in an online BBC article discussing a North-South divide of roads and business in Wales.

Tracy, who founded Outwrite in 1994, has overseen the growth of the firm into an award-winning digital agency.

Its clients include the Wales Air AmbulanceWynne Construction, Mold-based chemicals firm Synthite, and engineering, planning and environmental specialists Caulmert.
