The woes of Peterborough drivers earlier this week were raised in Parliament yesterday by the MP for North West Cambridgeshire.
Roadworks which shut the entry slip road on to the A1 at junction 17 caused gridlock around the city, with drivers using other routes as diversions - causing further delays.
Shailesh Vara told the Commons that it was "down to a decision by Highways England".
"That decision was taken by Highways England without any consultation to local stakeholders, with inadequate notice to motorists and with ill regard for a diverted route," he said.
Mr Vara called on the transport secretary to ensure the agency acted "in the best interests of the community rather than unilaterally".
