About this event

The presentation will cover the history of the development of the A14 Cambridge to Huntingdon scheme, an outline of the current proposal, the Development Consent Order process and Examination that the scheme has just progressed through. It will then go on to cover aspects of the design that is being taken forward such as for example the form and appearance of the proposed Great Ouse river crossing and the two iconic pedestrian and cycle bridges, finishing with the proposed construction programme, should the scheme get Ministerial approval, and some information on the construction challenges.

Mike is the Senior Project Manager for the scheme and has been involved since the scheme returned to Highways England to progress following the cancellation and withdrawal of the previous Ellington to Fen Ditton Scheme. He lead the progression of the scheme through the recent Development Consent Order process including the pre-application consultation and stakeholder engagement.

Prior to Joining Highways England Mike lead the transport team at the Government Office for the East of England and was involved, amongst other matters in the CHUMMS study which led to the implementation of a number of transport initiatives along the Cambridge to Huntingdon corridor of which the A14 upgrade is a part.

John Worthington is Operations Director of Mace, seconded into Highways England as Project Director for the A14 scheme. He brings a wealth of construction experience having previously been Chief Executive of contractor Wreakin Construction. His role is to work closely with the four contractors appointed for the scheme delivery to ensure that the scheme is delivered on time and to budget once approval is given. John also has a keen interest in making sure the construction is carried out in a way that is sympathetic to the local environment and local communities.
