A1260 Nene Parkway

The A1260 is a key strategic road in Peterborough’s transport network: it is part of the Parkway road system, which is key for commuters, local traffic and public transport.

We are working with our partners Peterborough City Council to deliver a range of improvements to Nene Parkway including Junctions 15 and 3.

Why is it important?

  • There are major traffic jams and delays at key junctions on Nene Parkway, affecting public transport, cars and emergency vehicles.
  • Queues northbound regularly reach more than a mile
  • Accidents are increasingly likely
  • Peterborough is growing rapidly with new opportunities for housing and jobs, which will increase demands on the road

What difference will it make?

Improving Nene Parkway aims to:

  • Reduce existing traffic jams and delays
  • Increase capacity so future growth does not add more congestions
  • Improve safety and reduce accidents
  • Improve the wellbeing of the thousands of drivers who use Nene Parkway every day
  • Support growth and development of new housing and jobs in Peterborough

What Happens Next?

We are working on the Full Business Cases for Junction 15 and Junction 3.

On the current timetable, as long as the project is approved at each stage, work is likely to be completed by the end of 2022.

Where can I learn more?

The Outline Business Cases for Junction 15 and Junction 32-3 are the technical documents that lay out the current thinking and plans for the project.
