WCN Editorial Team 13 May 2016 EUROPE TRANSPORT INFRASTRUCTURE

The UK government has given the go ahead for the upgrade of the A14 between Cambridge and Huntingdon.


Estimated to cost up to £1.5bn, the 21-mile project will include a new bypass of Huntingdon between Swavesey and Brampton, the widening of sections of the A1 and A14 roads, and improvements to a number of junctions.

The development will also involve improvements in Huntingdon Town Centre to include a new local access road.

Highways England director for complex infrastructure Chris Taylor said: “The scheme will provide much needed additional capacity to improve journey times and safety.

“We are keen to keep the momentum going and will get preparations for construction underway as soon as possible after the end of the six week statutory challenge period.”

Construction work is set to commence in late 2016 with the new bypass and widened A14 opening to traffic in 2020.
