Progress report

We have begun to identify options for this scheme. We are gathering more detailed information on existing conditions along the route as part of the process. We will be doing traffic and ecological surveys and assessing the environmental impacts of each option. We are engaging with local stakeholders and those likely to be impacted by our proposals. This will help us to develop the most suitable options for the area.

What next?

Once we have identified the options we will ask you for your opinion. We hope to do this in early 2017.

Why we need this scheme

The A428 between the A1 junction near St Neots and the A1198 Caxton Gibbet is single carriageway with a series of roundabouts and give-way junctions. It experiences major delays during peak periods. The A428 is an important route in an area of the country where considerable growth in housing and employment is planned.

Aims

The scheme will:
  • provide additional capacity to the A428
  • reduce congestion and delay
  • support local economic growth
