An opening date for the Huntingdon link road is expected by the end of the week but Huntingdonshire District Council remain tight-lipped about its future name.
As developers, HDC get to name the £10million road, which runs between Huntingdon Railway Station and Ermine Street, and is set to reveal the name at the opening ceremony.
Last week, we asked our readers to come up with a suitable name to help fire the imagination in HDC officers’ brains.
Ben Sansum recommends naming the road after Silent Channel, one time Huntingdon’s biggest employer and where his parent met in 1959. Mr Sansum, whose aunts and grandfather also worked there, suggests Silent Channel or Channel Road.
John Leaden carries on a similar theme, coming up with Scotney Way, after the Scotney builders who had a depot at the station before moving to Ermine Street, Huntingdon, in the late 60s. Mr Leaden, of Euston Street, Huntingdon, said: “I worked in the Ermine Street store for several years until 1968.
You may also want to watch:
“This firm was run by a well-known, respected family for many years and I feel that by having a presence at either end of the link road, I would like to see it named Scotney Way.”
John Aitken, of Stukeley Meadows, suggested Ermine Way or Stukeley Way and Patricia Palmer, of Godmanchester, recommended Cromwell Road.
