Andrea Leadsom MP welcomes progress on Towcester Relief Road

Rt Hon Andrea Leadsom MP for South NorthamptonshireRt Hon Andrea Leadsom MP for South Northamptonshire
South Northamptonshire MP has welcomed progress on the early delivery of the Towcester Relief Road.
It is anticipated that full technical approval for the connecting roundabout on the A5 will be obtained by Persimmon during early December this year, with full technical approval for the roundabout on the A43 following by March 2020; this has involved a lot of work with Highways England as both roundabouts sit on their Strategic Road Network.
The submission for the technical approval for the relief road itself is due to be made by mid-December this year.
Andrea said:
“Persimmon is making good progress on the technical design work for the Towcester Relief Road, and I am pleased to see that work is continuing apace.
“It is our shared ambition that works will commence on the road before March 2020, pending discussions with the County Council’s Speed Review Panel.
“I am arranging the next in the series of my regular meetings with Persimmon, the County Council and the District Council for October, where I look forward to receiving a fuller update on progress to date, including final confirmation of the funding mechanism between Persimmon and Highways England.
“Persimmon has already agreed to close the existing gap – around £4.6m – themselves, and is working with Highways England to secure this.”

Good to read that the Persimmon Homes access road is being actively discussed by Persimmon and the Highways Agency. Presume Towcester's 106 contribution to Persimmon is "closing the existing gap" in funding. Possibly a point worth mentioning in an article aimed at Towcester residents?
