Public invited to have say on planned A1 Alwalton to Lynch Wood road improvements

Proposals to improve a section of road between the A1 Alwalton to Lynch Wood in Peterborough will go out to public consultation.

Members of the public will be invited to have their say on the proposals from today (15 June), which include creating an additional lane of traffic (eastbound), installing traffic lights at the Alwalton junction and creating an additional footpath and cycleway.

The measures are being proposed to try and alleviate increased traffic caused by an increase in traffic going into Lynch Wood. The council has worked with businesses situated on the business park and will be undertaking initiatives to promote sustainable travel under the council’s Travelchoice initiative.

Cllr Peter Hiller, cabinet member for growth, planning, housing and economic development, said: "We know that traffic is an issue in this area. We've worked with businesses to alleviate this to some degree. Now we have come up with plans for a long-term solution.

"It's important to the city's economic development that we continue attracting business to the city. And by and large, we have a good transport foundation that can support this, with some of the lowest congestion levels of any UK city.

"We have been speaking with the businesses on Lynch Wood business park and are now in a position for everyone to have their say on the proposed scheme."

A four week public consultation on the scheme starts today. Members of the public who want to look at the plans in more detail can find them online and have their say on the council website. 

Anyone with feedback can submit this by emailing by the closing date 13 July 2018.
