Huntingdon’s new £10million link road will open to the public this afternoon.

The first motorists will be able to drive along Edison Bell Way from about 2.30pm.

The new road – named after Edison Bell Limited London & Huntingdon – connects Ermine Street and George Street with the aim of removing some traffic from the town’s ring road.

If you’re the first to drive along the ring road, get in contact: Ring Hywel Barrett on 01480 411481 or email hywel.barrett@archant.co.uk
