A new link road between Ditchford Lane and Rushden Lakes has been approved by East Northamptonshire Council’s planning committee.
A new road will mean easy access to the popular retail and leisure park from the A45 east bound for those visiting the park and for those making deliveries. It would also include a shared pedestrian and cycle path alongside the road as well as safe crossing points for those on foot or bike.
Leader of East Northamptonshire Council, Steven North, said: “We have been working closely with the site owners and developers to get plans in for a road that will take the pressure off the main entrance to Rushden Lakes. We understand how essential the road is for the local area and highways and now that the application is approved, we look forward to receiving confirmation of when work will start.”
