A1307 Update

The changes to the A1307, being facilitated by the Greater Cambridge Partnership (GCP), continue with the next steps about to be implemented.

These are the installation of average-speed cameras between Haverhill and Linton, a new roundabout at the Bartlow Road junction of the A1307 at Linton, and improvements to the Dean Road junction.

Other improvements that are still up for debate include:

- The westbound bus lane going into Linton from Haverhill, which is argued to be a waste of money as it will serve just three buses a day.

- The ‘hub’ at the end of Bartlow Road, Linton, which would give parking to around 20 cars, giving Linton High Street some much-needed parking relief.

- The signalised crossing at the Hildersham junction, which would allow a safer crossing point between Linton, Hildersham and Abington.

Henry Batchelor says: “We are pleased that the GCP are getting on with the work, as well as taking onboard comments from local councillors, parish councils and interested parties. We will continue to press for the schemes currently at a standstill, to overcome their hurdles and move forward.”
