More suggestions have been put forward for a name for the new Huntingdon link road, expected to be opened early next month.

Huntingdonshire District Council is keeping the name a secret until it is officially opened on April 8 but The Hunts Post invited readers’ ideas.

John Beaton backs the name Silent Channel, after the company which was based there. He said: “My ­grandfather, George Beaton, started Silent Channel in 1931 in Hanger Lane, in London, and moved to Huntingdon in 1936. My father, Kenneth Beaton, joined the company in 1945 until his retirement in 1979. I joined in 1973 and still work for them.

“Unfortunately, my office is now in Coventry and not Huntingdon.”

Diana Richardson also thought Silent Channel fitting but did not like the suggestion of Cromwell Road.

She said: “Sainsbury’s Way may be more suitable as they will soon own a good part of the town or, in a more flippant mood, how about Go West Boulevard.”

Jade McNamara suggested Easy Street, and Alan Butler has put forward Dryden Way because the road is in the area of Dryden House and Dryden Walk.

Another long-term Huntingdon resident remembers blackberries and mushrooms in the area, so suggests Blackberry Way, Mushroom Way or Thorn Road.

Robert Goodman, of George Street, Huntingdon, suggested Chivers Way, after the jam-makers ... but traffic and jam?
