Highways England’s revised timetable for the A428 Black Cat roundabout to Caxton Gibbet scheme says construction is now expected to commence in 2021/22.
In a submission to the Greater Cambridge Partnership Executive Board, Heidi Allen encouraged the GCP and LLF to continue working together to develop a predominantly on-road route.
Connectivity between Oxford, Milton Keynes and Cambridge is poor and interaction between the areas has, as a result, been restricted.
At the traditional ceremony to mark the beginning of construction, Heidi said: “This has been a long time coming, so today is a very important day for our region.”
Heidi has outlined her preference that the route should not pass through villages in the south of South Cambridgeshire.
Dr Andy Williams of AstraZeneca has thanked Heidi Allen MP for her personal contribution to and leadership of this cause.
