Bypasses: Kettering

Volume 462: debated on Wednesday 4 July 2007

To ask the Secretary of State for Transport if she will make available funding to help finance the construction of an eastern bypass for Kettering. (146392)

Northamptonshire county council, as the local highway authority, is responsible for preparing any proposals for an eastern bypass of Kettering. Should the council decide to promote such a scheme, it would need to obtain the region’s agreement to prioritise the scheme for funding within the East Midlands regional funding allocation for major transport schemes.

The council would then need to submit a detailed business case for the scheme, in line with departmental guidance, for consideration by the Department.
