In Traffic, Roads & Pathways

About the scheme

We are proposing to improve journeys between Milton Keynes and Cambridge with a new 10 mile dual carriageway between the Black Cat roundabout and Caxton Gibbet junction. We’re also creating and improving a number of junctions including a new three tier junction at Black Cat roundabout, which will allow traffic to flow freely on the A1 and the new dual carriageway.  The existing A428 between St Neots and Caxton Gibbet will be de-trunked and retained for local traffic, public transport, walkers, cyclists and horse riders.

About the consultation

Our public consultation runs from 3 June to 28 July 2019 and your feedback will help us develop our proposals further to the stage when we are ready to submit our Development Consent Order (DCO) application.
