The new loop road is essential to the creation of the new Great Haddon development, which is set to create 5,350 homes, as well as 9,000 jobs, four schools, three shopping centres and sports facilities near the A1M and A15.

The development is moving forward in phases, with approval for the loop road gained by O&H Properties gained in March 2021. This will enable 347 new homes to be built on northern parcels on the Phase 1 Development area, which was approved in 2019.

As part of the construction process, the existing site levels need to be adjusted in line with the approved plans and suitable fill materials need to be found to placed beneath the loop road.
