Highways England has today announced its preferred route for improvements to the A428 between the Black Cat roundabout and Caxton Gibbet.

Mayor Dave Hodgson, Chair of England's Economic Heartland's Strategic Transport Forum, said: "We welcome this announcement – improving the Black Cat to Caxton Gibbet is a key priority for the Heartland. This work is crucial for realising the Heartland's economic potential, supporting the ambitions of Local Plans and for improving the quality of life of those who use it or live nearby. England's Economic Heartland is committed to working closely with Highways England as these plans are taken forward, to help ensure delivery happens at the earliest opportunity."
