A47 Wansford-Sutton

Scheme outline

Reconstruction of the A47 between the A1 and Wansford and the western end of the Castor Bypass to provide a dual two-lane road and improved junctions.

At present this section of the A47 connects Peterborough with points to the north and west, and is the last remaining section of single carriageway road between the town and the A1 to the north. Improvements will be made at the A1, including a new free-flowing sliproad from the southbound A1 towards Peterborough, though major changes to the layout of the existing interchange appear to be unlikely.

A grade separated junction may be provided to replace the roundabout at the western end of the Castor Bypass.

This scheme is part of the A47 Corridor Improvement programme of works.
