Still time for fleets to take part in A14 consultation
In September 2013 the Highways Agency held a public consultation to consider route options for the A14 scheme. As a result of this exercise, the proposed scheme has been developed in more detail and plans to toll the road have been dropped.
The changes that have been made in response to feedback from last year’s consultation include improvements to Brampton, Swavesey, Bar Hill and Girton junctions. An updated local access road has also been proposed between Fen Drayton and Swavesey.
The current consultation exercise forms part of the statutory planning process and is intended to give local residents, businesses, haulage operators and communities more information on the scope and details of the proposals and to have their say on the plans.
Mike Evans, the Highways Agency’s Senior Project Manager for the A14 scheme, said: ‘This is a vital scheme that will deliver benefits for Cambridgeshire and those who regularly use the A14, and we want to make sure the scheme best meets the needs of businesses, road-users and the local community. There is still plenty of time for everyone with an interest in this scheme to have their say so get online and let us know what you think.
The online consultation started on 7th April and closes on 15th June.
Members of the public can also find out more by visiting one of the exhibitions during the months of April, May and June, where they can view the plans and talk to staff about the proposals.
