The NFU has submitted its response to Highways England’s proposed changes to the A428 Black Cat to Caxton Gibbet Improvements Scheme.

Highways England is proposing to improve the A428 between Black Cat and Caxton Gibbet by constructing a new 10 mile dual carriageway along with better junctions. Changes have been made to the scheme following the consultation in 2019 including flood storage areas, landscaping and local access. There have also been proposed changes to the development boundary and the introduction of 4 borrow pits, which will allow Highways England to extract material to be used for the construction of the scheme.

The NFU has submitted a response to the consultation highlighting key areas of concern including borrow pits, new flood storage areas, design issues and construction of the scheme.
