Years could be cut from key transport projects including Wisbech Rail and dualling A47 says Mayor James Palmer
A report into vital transport infrastructure schemes for Cambridgeshire has found that projects can be completed years ahead of conventional schedules by using fresh approaches to how they are delivered.
The review, which followed Mayor James Palmer’s Interim Transport Strategy Statement in May, looked at how key projects including the A47 dualling, the Wisbech Access Strategy, Wisbech Rail and solving the Ely rail bottleneck, can all be completed more quickly.
The opportunities for time savings come from three main areas, where the Combined Authority can employ fresh thinking and new ideas to challenge the conventional approaches to infrastructure delivery. The first is managing the projects with a focus lean, efficient processes coupled with quicker decision making at key gateway stages.
