It's Annual Council tonight, when the appointments for the year are made - I've been given Cabinet responsibility for Highways and Transport once more.
I have to say that I'm delighted - the coming 12 months will see several key projects come to fruition, notably the Eastern Transport Corridor. Overseeing the completion date and budget will be a key task, as will work on Haughton Road to ensure that the benefits of the new road in reducing congestion are fully realised.
Tackling congestion elsewhere will be a top priority, with bids in to address trouble spots across the town.
Our work as a Sustainable Travel Town and Cycling Demonstration Town will also enter a new phase. A cycle/pedestrian bridge will be built across the East Coast Main Line on Haughton Road, and I hope there will be substantial progress on the cycle path along the Skerne towards the town centre. Parking needs sorting out in several places on the outskirts of the town centre. Finally, we have set out an ambitious set of targets to implement 20mph zones in our manifesto in 7 places around town, which needs following through.
All-in-all, it should be an exciting year.
