We are proposing to upgrade the route between the Black Cat roundabout and Caxton Gibbet roundabout with a new 10-mile dual carriageway and a number of junction improvements. The scheme will improve journeys between Milton Keynes and Cambridge, bringing communities together and supporting long term growth in the region.
What’s happening now?
This scheme is a Nationally Significant Infrastructure Project (NSIP), which means it’s classed as a large, complex infrastructure project that benefits the entire country.
To build the scheme, we need to seek permission through a special planning process and gain a Development Consent Order (DCO) from the Planning Inspectorate.
We consulted on the scheme in 2019 and in summer 2020. As a result of your feedback, we’re currently making any necessary changes to our proposals. We plan to submit our Development Consent Order application at the end of February 2021. You can read more about that process in this booklet.
Watch our fly-through video showing you our proposals for the scheme.
