“Any changes to the current proposals are totally unacceptable to the
whole of the Cambridgeshire business community and the upgrade must go
ahead as originally planned and on time.” said John Bridge OBE, Chief
Executive of the Cambridgeshire Chamber of Commerce.
He continued: “We are astonished that
any changes are even being contemplated at this late stage when all
involved know of the critical importance of upgrading the A14 as
involved must ensure every pressure is bought to bear on key decision
makers to emphasise that any watering down or changes to the original
funded proposals are totally unacceptable”
As we understand it, the role of The
Highways Agency is to ensure the practical implementation of the
current proposals as quickly and effectively as possible and most
definitely not putting forward inferior alternative proposals.
The Chamber of Commerce will actively
engage with all other concerned organisations to ensure the timely
delivery of the only real alternative, the currently funded proposals.
