March: Multi-Million Transport Upgrades

£4.4 million could be spent improving transport in March.

Cambridgeshire County Council has announced a range of proposals including safety improvements to road layouts and lower speed limits in some areas.

Other options include a link road between the Fenland town's industrial estates, new bus stops, improved cycleways and footpaths and improvement at March train station.

A public consultation into the proposals has been set up by Cambridgeshire County Council, and runs until the 17 March.

Local Cllr Steve Count, Cabinet Member for Resources and Performance, said: "The strategy not only attempts to address some of the existing shortcomings of the current transport system in March, but also aims to plan ahead for known developments that will take place. 

I am keen to see what the people of March think. 

If accepted as a way forward they could make the town a more pleasant place to visit and really open up the economic opportunities for the town.

I hope that people will take the opportunity to come along or go online to have their say. 

The public's views at this stage are vital, it's your Town; so please help us to ensure we get our plans to tackle the transport issues important to the people of March, are right for you." 

Exhibitions where the plans can be viewed will be held at:

March Town Hall, 12am-8pm, Wednesday 20 February
