Fresh Calls To Improve The A45 Between Stanwick And Thrapston.

3 hours
First broadcast:
Friday 22 November 2013

Wellingborough MP Peter Bone launches a campaign to improve the A45 between the Chowns Mill Roundabout at Higham Ferrers and Thrapston.

He wants to see major improvements at the Chowns Mill roundabout and is pushing for the A45 between Stanwick and Thrapston, currently a single carriageway, to be dualled.

Reporter Martin Borley finds out how congested it can be, while reporter Willy Gilder looks at other local roads projects and the progress they’ve made.

Stuart talks to Peter Bone, to Corby Labour MP Andy Sawford and to John Farmery from the Chowns Mill Action Group.
