Region:  East Midlands

Cost:  £200 – £250 million
Status:  PLANNED

Programme:  Regional Investment Strategy

Progress report

We made the preferred route announcement on 31 January 2018.

This followed careful consideration of all the feedback received during, and after the consultation period.

You can read the documents below by visiting the consultation page:

  • Preferred Route Announcement brochure
  • Scheme Assessment Report (Non-Technical Summary)
  • Report on Public Consultation

What's next

We will now continue our work looking more closely at the local area, completing our surveys and investigations to help finalise the preliminary design of the scheme in greater detail.

There will then be a further period of statutory public consultation later this year, when we ask you for your views on this more detailed design before we seek planning approval through the submission of an application for a Development Consent Order under the Planning Act 2008.

We will work with the local authorities to shape this consultation, to ensure that everyone has the opportunity to have their say.

Aims

The aims of the scheme are to:
  • reduce congestion
