Jonathan Djanogly, Member of Parliament for the Huntingdon Constituency, has today warmly welcomed National Highways’ plan to begin full construction of the A428 Black Cat to Caxton Gibbet scheme by the end of the year.
This scheme is one that Jonathan has consistently campaigned in favour of and, now that the legal process which had been preventing construction is over, a new timetable is being worked towards.
This will see the new 10-mile dual carriageway and related junction improvements open in 2027, all of which will shorten journey times between Milton Keynes and Cambridge, bring communities together and support long term local economic growth.
Commenting on recent developments, Jonathan said:
“The Black Cat to Caxton Gibbet scheme will bring significant benefits to the local area and, as a long-time vocal supporter of it, I am very pleased full construction will be underway by the end of the year.
“Alongside cutting journey times and congestion, the new dual carriageway and related junction improvements will help bring communities together, turbocharge economic growth and improve the environment.
“I look forward to seeing work on the scheme pick up in earnest over the coming months, and I will continue to work with all relevant stakeholders to ensure progress continues.”
