Plans to switch A1 junction at Wittering to a flyover move forward

A business case has been drawn up for a flyover bridging the A1 at Wittering.

This will be taken to Transport Minister Chris Grayling in May and will outline reasons why the current gap in the central reservation should be replaced.

John Bradshaw, who co-ordinates the A1 Flyover Campaign, said a meeting of interested parties at Peterborough City Council offices on Wednesday March 20 had been 'very positive'.

As a result of the meeting, a deputation for Wittering village and parish council, RAF Wittering and North West Cambridgeshire MP Shailesh Vara will now outline the main points of their case to the transport minister.

These include the danger of the current junction, that many Wittering residents suffer from 'village isolation' because they are cut off from facilities such as doctors and dentists, and that carbon emissions are increased because people have to drive north to Stamford in order to travel south from Wittering.

Mr Bradshaw said: "We do understand the Government has limited money, but we still need to try."
