About the funder

National Highways will be upgrading the route between the Black Cat roundabout in Bedfordshire and Caxton Gibbet roundabout in Cambridgeshire with a new 10-mile dual carriageway and a number of junction improvements. It will improve journeys between Milton Keynes, Bedford, St Neots and Cambridge, bringing communities together, supporting long-term growth in the region and stopping rat running in the villages.

One of the main objectives of the A428 Black Cat to Caxton Gibbet improvement scheme is to leave a positive legacy. They have teamed up with us to provide a community fund that adds value and supports local initiatives along the route in Bedfordshire and Cambridgeshire.
