Roads: Colchester

Volume 470: debated on Friday 25 January 2008

To ask the Secretary of State for Transport when she expects work to commence on the junction from the A12 Colchester Northern by-pass to the Northern Approach Road near the Colchester Community Stadium. (180903)

Delivery of the junction is tied to planning consent and is a matter for developers to take forward in line with plans for delivery of proposed housing, employment and leisure facilities in North Colchester. Both English Partnerships and the Highways Agency are working to help bring forward time scales for delivery. In view of this, start date is not currently available, although it is anticipated that work could start during 2009, subject to the completion of statutory procedures.
