A long-awaited report into the future of one of the region's most congested roads will be released later today.

The A10 north is a key transport route for economic growth in the region, linking Ely, and other towns and villages to the north, with the city and wider transport network.

Rapid growth has put pressure on the road with peak-time congestion.

Thousands of new jobs and homes are planned along the route over the next decade or so, including 10,000 new homes at Waterbeach alone.

A study was commissioned by the Greater Cambridge Partnership to look out how to address the current challenges. It will be published today (Monday 8th January).

Any proposals will then be considered by all the councils affected.
