Major highways projects and investment

Major road projects in North Northamptonshire:

  • A43 Northampton to Kettering - The A43 between Northampton and Kettering suffers from congestion hotspots, journey time delay and road safety issues due to vehicles trying to overtake. To tackle these problems, it is proposed to dual the A43 all the way between the A45 and the A14. Due to the scale of the scheme, this will be achieved in phases
  • A509 Isham bypass - developed to address existing traffic issues in Isham and to accommodate anticipated traffic growth in the coming years


  • Network North funding - An £8.3 billion commitment to highways maintenance across England over the next 11 years, and our area is due to receive over £62m in total between 2023/24 and 2033/34.
