A14 upgrade approved by the Secretary of State
11th May 2016
Jonathan Djanogly welcomes formal approval of A14 upgrade announced by Secretary of State for Transport.
“I am delighted that the Government recognised the vital need to upgrade the A14 and that the Secretary of State has today announced his formal approval of the application to upgrade the road. Having been at the forefront of the campaign to upgrade the A14 for over a decade I certainly welcome this development and appreciate that the A14 is a priority project for this government. Today's announcement is excellent news for my constituents in Huntingdonshire and for the East of England. The A14 upgrade will improve safety for users of the road and provide the infrastructure necessary to develop our local and regional businesses and indeed our prosperity moving forwards. Local MPs, Councils, business leaders and the Local Enterprise Partnership have all put a great deal of work into leading a strong campaign for a better A14 and I am pleased to see a successful outcome of that sustained effort.ö
