Busy A-roads to receive major upgrades

Busy A-roads to receive major upgrades

In a bid to reduce congestion, Highways England will be turning them into expressways.

A recent proposal issued by Highways England will see some of the UK’s busiest A-roads upgraded to new 70mph expressways.

All of the traffic lights and roundabouts currently situated along these major routes will be removed in a bid to seriously ease congestion and reduce delays.

Other parts of the plan will see other busy roads widened out into three lanes as well as shorter slips roads being made longer and slow-moving vehicles like tractors banned from using them.

The government-backed roads operator has stated that it expects traffic to increase by more than a third across all of the UK in the next twenty years unless action is taken.

As a result, motorists could potentially see average speeds drop from the 59.4mph they were in 2015 to 55.1mph by 2041.

Response to the proposal has been quite been mixed with Better Transport campaigner Bridget Fox stating that “the plans to build big new expressways and convert A-roads to motorways are not the answer to the challenge of connecting our towns and cities.”

Among the first to benefit from the project’s first £1.5 million phase will be the A14 between Huntingdon and Cambridge in 2020.

A further £30 billion will then be spent between 2020 and 2025 in order to upgrade other expressways including the A3 between London and Portsmouth and the A1 north of Peterborough.
