About this event

The existing A14 trunk road between Cambridge and Huntingdon is well known for congestion and delays. Almost 85,000 vehicles use this stretch of road every day; significantly more than the level originally designed for. Around quarter of this is heavy goods vehicles - well above the national average for this type of road.

The government has committed to the investment for the scheme and proposals have been developed. The presentation will describe the current proposals for the £1.5 billion capital investment for the improvements to the A14 between Cambridge and Huntingdon, which include:

  • Widening a section of the A1 trunk road between Brampton and Alconbury.
  • Removing the road viaduct over the railway at Huntingdon.
  • A new bypass to the south of Huntingdon.
  • Detrunking the A14 between Ellington and Swavesey.
  • Widening the carriageway on the A14 between Swavesey and Girton.
  • A new local access road.
  • Improvements to the Cambridge Northern Bypass.
  • Junction improvements.

An update of progress with the necessary statutory procedures, including the Development Consent Order (DCO) for the scheme, will be given, as well as a summary of the benefits of the proposed scheme and of how the scheme is going to be funded.


  • Mike Evans (Senior Project Manager, Highways England)
  • John Worthington (Project Director, Mace)

The talk will be preceded by a brief Branch AGM.
