Project update from Highways England
Since the announcement, we have been gathering information and carrying out a range of assessments and surveys to help us better understand the area. The feedback given during the consultation in 2016 continues to help us to develop the design of the route and as a result, we have made some changes. We’re working to make sure the crossing improves journeys, creates opportunities for economic growth and minimises community and environmental impacts.
We are still at an early stage of the process, and there is still a lot of work to be done on the design. During the consultation that is planned to take place next year you will have a further opportunity to have your say on the scheme’s development and to shape our proposals before we submit our application for a Development Consent Order.by
