Roads

Although the Combined Authority wants to prioritise the development of public and ‘active’ transport modes, we also recognise that the private car remains a key mode for many residents across Cambridgeshire and Peterborough.

We do therefore support targeted highway infrastructure and enhancement schemes such as upgrades to the A47 (including the junction between the A1 and A47) between Kings Lynn, Wisbech and Peterborough, to improve labour market accessibility to and from the Fens and Wisbech Garden town; King’s Dyke crossing improvements, to relieve traffic congestion and associated safety issues caused by the level crossing; and dualling of the A428, which will significantly improve commuter links along the Oxford to Cambridge corridor.

Improvements to the A14, one of the most congested routes in the country, are currently underway and will bring journey time, reliability and safety benefits to residents, workers and businesses alike. New travel hubs and interchanges will act as gateways to our public transport network, giving car users the opportunity to travel sustainably for part of their journey.
