New Road Finally Opens

It's finally open, the new road improvement scheme 1073 / A16 Peterborough to Spalding road. The final stretch of the new Spalding by-pass link road had been long awaited but was delayed due to contractual problems between the main contractor and Peterborough City Council. At a cost of £80 million it has been a long time coming.
Having travelled along it at rush hour time the last two days it is proving to be very busy. The old 1073 is due for a makeover in the coming weeks and will be closed from 24th October.
