New date for Huntingdon station access opening

We're pleased to confirmed the new station access road for Huntingdon train station will open at approximately 11am on Friday 11 December.

The existing access via Brampton Road will close shortly after, and will no longer be accessible from 12 noon on Friday 11 December.

The map below shows where the new access will be as well as the area we’ll be working in.

Huntingdon Station access route December 2020

Where are we now?

Our work to transform the old A14 for local journeys in and around Huntingdon, including taking down the 45-year-old Huntingdon Railway Viaduct, is progressing as planned and should be completed by 2022. In addition to the viaduct removal, we’re also building more than half a mile of new link roads into the town.

At the end of October, we opened the new Pathfinder link road, which provides a route for people to access Huntingdon from the A1307 (the old A14). Work to remove the 12,000 tonne railway viaduct and build the new Mill Common and Views Common link roads continues. Once complete, the new Views Common link road will connect the old A14 into the town from the west.

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.

Work includes:

  • 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 in December 2019, we closed the A1307 (old A14) between Godmanchester and Spittals in both directions to allow work to remove the Huntingdon viaduct to proceed.

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.
