The purpose of this report is for Cabinet to consider and approve the award of £518,988 to Milestone Infrastructure Limited to deliver construction of active travel schemes which are part of the A1260 Nene Parkway Junction 32 to Junction 3 improvement scheme.
Cabinet considered the report and RESOLVED to:
1. Approve the award of £518,988 to Milestone Infrastructure Limited to deliver construction of active travel schemes (Malborne Way and Shrewsbury Avenue) which are part of the A1260 Nene Parkway Junction 32 to Junction 3 improvement scheme.
This recommendation has been made to ensure that the Council is able to effectively deliver grant funding awarded to it by the CPCA for the active travel improvement schemes. Successful delivery of the funding will help the Council to obtain further funding from the CPCA for construction of the main highway scheme.
Not to deliver the scheme:This has been discounted because the walking and cycling network in and around Junction 3 of the A1260 Nene Parkway is in need of better connected routes that link to the wider network. Delivering the active travel improvements will provide residents with an alternative and more sustainable form of travel compared to the car. Successful delivery of the scheme will provide significant benefits to the wider travelling public, resulting in improvements to; journey times, accessibility and the environment.
