​Peterborough is a cathedral city in the county of Cambridgeshire. Located 76 miles north of London, Peterborough has an estimated population of 202,110 as of 2017. Cheltenham has seen numerous large scale construction projects over the past couple of years and has multiple large constructions projects in the pipeline, such as:

Two New Schools

The council, assisted by its technical advisers Rider Levett Bucknall, appointed Wates to undertake the construction of Manor Drive Primary and Secondary schools on land at Paston Reserve after planning permission was granted in October 2020, following a public consultation. The two schools are set to open in September 2022, providing at capacity 900 secondary places, 420 primary places and 26 nursery places.

Junction 3 and Junction 15 highway improvement schemes

Cambridgeshire & Peterborough Combined Authority, headed by Mayor James Palmer, has awarded Peterborough City Council the funding to prepare a Transport Business Case and undertake Detailed Design for improvement schemes at two critical parkway junctions:

  • Junction 15 (A1260 Nene Parkway / A47 Soke Parkway)

  • Junction 3 (A1260 Nene Parkway / A1139 Fletton Parkway)

Both junctions suffer from congestion, especially at peak times, and the proposed enhancements will reduce delay and improve journey times which will benefit Peterborough’s residents, businesses, visitors and overall economy.
