National Highways is improving journeys between Milton Keynes, Bedford and Cambridge.
- The A428 between St Neots and Caxton Gibbet is the only stretch of single carriageway between the M1 near Milton Keynes and Cambridge.
- It is an important link between the M1 and the M11, connecting the communities of Bedford, St Neots, Cambridge and Cambourne.
- Around 25,300 vehicles travel between Cambridge Road and Caxton Gibbet every day. With considerable local housing and job growth expected, this number is likely to grow to 32,900 vehicles by 2040.
- People that use the A428 regularly experience congestion and delays, especially in rush hour. The situation is made worse by the lack of alternative routes.
Archaeological excavations are being carried out along the new proposed route, ensuring that sites of possible historical interest are identified and investigated.
