Plans to spend £13 million to alleviate traffic congestion in Whittlesey has received a recommendation from the town council.

A consultation on building a bridge at the King’s Dyke level crossing ends on Monday December 15 with three options available for residents to give feedback on.

The level crossing can be shut between eight and 25 minutes in any hour due to passing trains.

Whittlesey Town Council has now come out unanimously in favour of building a bridge to the south of the level crossing.

The other two options, which were to build the bridge over the level crossing or to the north of it were rejected.

The former was rejected due to construction concerns and the latter due to the need to buy land off businesses.

The consultation was launched on October 30.

The questionnaire and more on the proposals is available at www.cambridgeshire.gov.uk/kingsdykecross.
