Strategic transport in Cambridge

Video for this item of business will appear here.

Julian Huppert, the Liberal Democrat MP for Cambridge, led a debate in Westminster Hall on 27 July on transport projects around the city.

The coalition government recently announced that the proposed improvement of the A14 between Cambridge and Huntingdon will now be suspended as part of cutbacks to major capital spending projects.

The £1.1 billion scheme was intended to reduce congestion on one of the busiest roads in the East of England and had been backed by businesses and MPs.

It is also expected that the debate will highlight delays to the opening of a new guided busway between Cambridge and St Ives that was due to open in 2009.

A number of technical problems have caused lengthy delays to the scheme which is now not expected to open until November.
