More urgency to improve a key transport bottleneck between Cambridge and Ely is being called for by politicians.
Cambridgeshire & Peterborough mayor James Palmer and East Cambs district council leader Charles Roberts today met with South East Cambridgeshire MP, Lucy Frazer, to discuss the need for the A10 upgrade to be accelerated.
It’s expected that a feasibility study looking into the proposed upgrades, commissioned by the County Council, will be published before the end of the year. At which stage the different options for upgrading the road will be considered.
Following the meeting, Mayor of Cambridgeshire & Peterborough, James Palmer said: “I fully appreciate the frustration that many of those who live along the A10 feel regarding the level of congestion and the time it’s taking to find a solution. With thousands of homes planned for the north of Ely and Waterbeach clearly a solution is needed sooner rather than later.
“All those who use the A10 to commute should rest assured that the Combined Authority is determined to fully play its part in finding a solution.”
Lucy Frazer MP said: “Many constituents continue to highlight the delays they experience on the A10. Upgrading this road is one of my priorities. I will continue to press key stakeholders to progress developments along this route to ease traffic congestion.”
