Jonathan Djanogly welcomes roads infrastructure investment


1st December 2014

Speaking in the House of Commons, Jonathan Djanogly welcomes the announcement of major road infrastructure investment and the proposals for the A428, A14 and A1 together show the Government understands the infrastructure needs of this area.

Mr Jonathan Djanogly (Huntingdon) (Con): With the A428 now included as a named scheme, together with the A14 proposals and now the A1 feasibility study announcement, this Secretary of State and this Government are showing a profound understanding and commitment to developing the infrastructure needed for my constituency and the whole of the east of England. Will he say a little more about the timing of the feasibility study for the A1?

Mr McLoughlin: I have already spoken to my hon. Friend, who came to see me a few weeks ago, about the Cambridge to Milton Keynes route, which, for him, is a first move in the right direction. He is absolutely right about what we have to do in the longer term on a road investment strategy. We have done it for the railways and we should be very pleased that we are going to do it for roads in future. These schemes do not happen overnight—they take planning. It is right that we try to take local communities along with us wherever we can and gather support for sensible proposals, so that we are not rushing forward and turning the tap on and off, but ensuring that people can see that this forms part of an overall strategy.
