Isham Bypass Update


4th February 2011

THE ISHAM by pass will not go ahead.

The government announced today the scheme will not be put forward for consideration until at least 2015.

The only road scheme which was given the green light in the county for investment was the Corby Link Road.

This year, Northamptonshire County Council submitted Expressions of Interest to the Department of Transport for both the A43 Corby Link Road and the A509 Isham Bypass.
Secretary Philip Hammond announced today the Corby Link Road has been carried forward to the next stage, which will see the government work closely with the county council over the next few months with a view to achieving a full approval announcement for the scheme towards the end of 2011.

Subject to full approval, it is likely that the Corby Link Road scheme will commence in 2012/13 albeit final details will need to be agreed.

The government’s announcement also means the Isham to Wellingborough Improvement (IWIMP) project will not be considered for funding until after 2015 at the earliest.
