Have your say on our consultation page
Our consultation on options to improve the A428 between Black Cat roundabout and Caxton Gibbet begins on Monday 6 March. We also want your views on options to improve the Black Cat roundabout, which we have identified as a priority.
Your views at this early stage are important to us; they will help us to develop our proposals and understand what is important to our customers and local communities. We will hold a further consultation as the scheme progresses.
We are still at an early stage of developing the scheme. We will continue to gather more detailed information on existing conditions along the route as part of the process. We will be doing further traffic and ecological surveys and assessing the environmental impacts of each option. We will continue engagement with local stakeholders and those likely to be impacted by our proposals.

Why we need this schemeThe A428 between the A1 junction near St Neots and the A1198 Caxton Gibbet is single carriageway with a series of roundabouts and give-way junctions. It experiences major delays during peak periods. The A428 is an important route in an area of the country where considerable growth in housing and employment is planned.
AimsThe scheme will:
- provide additional capacity to the A428
- reduce congestion and delay
- support local economic growth
