TRAVELLING across the Fens could become easier if a new trouble shooting group is successful in sorting out traffic clogged roadways in the region.

The aim is to speed up travel for people living in the area and to cut back the rise in traffic jams on our roads.

It is hoped that improving transport links will give a much needed boost to businesses in the area who are being held back by poor infrastructure.

The new lobby group, called Moving Forward North Cambridgeshire, is set to help speed up improvements on the A47.

It specifically wants to target the route between Wisbech and March.

The group will look at rail links in the area and how to solve problems at Whittlesea’s Kings Dyke level crossing.

It will be comprised of members of Cambridgeshire County Council and Fenland District Council who will look at transport problems in the whole of North Cambridgeshire.

“North Cambridgeshire is a great place to live and work but it is clear that poor transport links are placing a stranglehold on the area,” said Ian Bates, county council cabinet member for growth and planning.

He added that they would be looking at alternative ways of funding road improvements instead of relying solely on Government funding.
