A new river crossing could help reduce traffic congestion in Wisbech.
The action plan for Wisbech transport strategy includes a technical study into the options for a new link road and/or river crossing to the north and west of the town which would connect the A1101 to the B198 Cromwell Road.
Its aim would be to reduce congestion in the town centre and in particular reduce the traffic flow at the A47/A1101 Elm Road roundabout, the Town Bridge traffic signals and key junctions around the town.
The aim of the study will provide a strong evidence for the need and for pursuing a preferred option for either a new link road and/or river crossing.
Funding for the scheme would need to come from central government via the Greater Cambridge Greater Peterborough Local Enterprise Partnership.
