from Cllr Alex Riley
My colleague Simon Edwards and I have just met with Philip Harker of Homes England. We explained to him about the conflicting messages that have been put out about a consultation period, together with previous commitments not to shut the road until the A14 upgrade is completed, etc. It seems possible that the works that are intended could proceed with the road left open, but subject to delays so that heavy plant can cross the road. We agreed that a meeting should be held very soon (before the 3rd May election) to involve County Council Highways officers and Pete Hudson, our County Councillor. I will report back to you after this meeting!
Whatever the outcome of this meeting, the Airfield Road will continue to be open for pedestrians, cyclists and invalid carriages.
