What’s left to do?
The A14 Cambridge to Huntingdon improvement scheme opened to traffic eight months early on 5 May 2020. We still have some work to carry out before the main scheme is complete. This includes:
- work on the road verges
- completing the cycle, horse riding and pedestrian paths
- finishing the landscaping
To carry out this work safely, some temporary overnight closures or off-peak daytime lane closures will be needed on the A14 and as well as on the A1307. Information about upcoming closures will be shared in advance via our usual communications channels.
Our work to transform the old A14 for local journeys in and around Huntingdon, including taking down the 45-year-old, 16,400 tonne Huntingdon Railway Viaduct, is also progressing as planned and should be completed by 2022. In addition to the viaduct removal, more than half a mile of new link roads are being built into the town.
To allow us to do this work, the old A14 (now the A1307) was closed in both directions between Godmanchester and Spittals when the Huntingdon southern bypass opened in December 2019. This section will remain closed until work on the new link roads is complete and the roads are tied in to the existing road network in Huntingdon. Read more about the work in Huntingdon here.
