Jonathan Djanogly launches campaign to upgrade A428 between St Neots and Cambridge


11th November 2013

Jonathan Djanogly MP is joining with The Hunts Post to launch a campaign to upgrade A428 between St Neots and Cambridge.

He said:
“I need a huge show of people saying this road is not working, backed up by thousands signing an online petition to get the ball rolling, then I can go to the Highways Agency and the Government, have a meeting with the Transport Minister, and say this has got to be dealt with.”

Jonathan said he was open-minded about what would work best for the A428.
“There are two general options – expand the existing road by dualling or a new road. The existing road could be de-trunked so it becomes a local road and then there could be a new road to the south, which could go directly down to the Black Cat roundabout.”

“One thing for sure is I’m now getting more concerns about the A428 than anything else, including tolling. It’s the main issue of concern for people, in St Neots in particular.”

He added that local roads were already under strain and is concerned things will worsen as more people move into new housing at Loves Farm and Cambourne.

“Even without the A14, there are capacity issues that need to be addressed.”

A Highways Agency spokesman said the A428 would be included in a series of “route based strategies” – a review of routes which would be used to prioritise schemes for funding as part of spending reviews, the first of which will be in 2015.
