Engaging with you about our proposals
Below you can find details of the consultations that have taken place for the A428 Black Cat to Caxton Gibbet scheme, asking for your views and feedback on our proposals.
Consultation on gas pipeline, November – December 2020
We consulted on the diversion of a high pressure gas pipeline in Central Bedfordshire. The consultation closed on 18 December 2020.
In 2019 we consulted on our proposals to improve journeys between Milton Keynes and Cambridge with a new 10 mile dual carriageway between the Black Cat and Caxton Gibbet roundabouts. We also wanted your views on a number of new and improved junctions along the route.
We held public consultation events throughout the community and invited you to have your say via our consultation page.
