Finally after many years with little investment in our road and rail network in Huntingdonshire it seems we will soon be spoilt for choice.
The A14 works are due to be finished by the end of next year and now Highways England has declared its preferred route of a new 10 mile carriageway between the Black Cat roundabout on the A1 and Caxton Gibbet. Coming alongside the current East West Rail consultation, that will link Cambridge to Oxford, which we reported in our last issue, travel options south from St Ives will be transformed.
The scheme has been welcomed by Huntingdonshire District Council and Councillor Ryan Fuller said ‘Critically, it will begin to reduce constraints to both local and wider cross country journeys, and give much greater certainty about the ability to move around within our District efficiently and effectively’.
