Plans to widen the vital A14 link road near Peterborough have taken a step forward.
The planning application for the A14 Cambridge to Huntingdon improvement scheme has been accepted by the Government’s Planning Inspectorate, which will now examine it.
The examination also includes the opportunity for members of the public to have their views considered.
Last year the Highways Agency received 1,400 plus responses, during a formal consultation on the scheme which could cost up to £1.5 billion.
As a result several design changes were made to the proposal.
Mike Evans, ofthe Highways Agency’s A14 Cambridge to Huntingdon project team, said: ““I strongly urge anyone with an interest in the A14 plans - whether living locally or outside of Cambridgeshire, - to register as an ‘interested party’ with the Planning Inspectorate. “
This can be done via infrastructure.planningportal.gov.uk from Wednesday, 11 February.
Once completed this vital investment will relieve congestion on one of the busiest parts of this network between the Midlands and East Anglia.”
