Where are we now?
Over Christmas 2019, we installed a safety deck under the viaduct which crosses Brampton Road (B1514) and the East Coast Mainline. The protection deck means we can start preparation work to remove the viaduct while trains are running and reduces the number of closures needed on Brampton Road (work over railway lines is usually only allowed when trains are not running).
We’re now preparing for the removal of the bridge beams, which will begin in March.
About the work in Huntingdon
The work in and around Huntingdon is an important part of the project and will benefit Huntingdon and its residents by reducing noise, air pollution and improving station facilities.
- a new Mill Common link road
- removal of the old A14 viaduct and work around the train station
- a new Views Common link road
- a new Pathfinder link road
Following the opening of the Huntingdon southern bypass, we closed the existing A14 between Godmanchester (junction 24) and Spittals (junction 23) in both directions to allow work to remove the Huntingdon viaduct to begin.
Non-through traffic, such as HGVs, should access Huntingdon via the Spittals roundabout and the A141. Other drivers can continue to access Huntingdon via Godmanchester as they currently do.
This closure will remain in place until all work in Huntingdon is complete and the new roads are tied in to the existing road network.
