A year of disruption ahead as major parkway revamp planned in Peterborough

A year of disruption could be ahead in Peterborough as major revamp works are planned on the Fletton Parkway.

Monday, 25th October 2021, 7:35 am
Disruption is expected around Junction 3 of the A1139.

A project is being designed by Milestone Infrastructure Ltd for Peterborough City Council in collaboration with the Combined Authority to widen the north, east and south approaches to Junction 3 of the A1139.

There are also plans to add signals to the north and south approaches to create a fully signalised junction where there is currently a partially signalised one. Alongside this will be a new off-road cycle way on Phorpres Close and Phorpres Way.

When approached for comment, the city council said that they were unable to advise on construction costs because the plans are still the initial design stages but that work is likely to start in the 2023/24 financial year, which starts and begins in April, and last for between ten and twelve months.
