Return to the A14 Cambridge to Huntingdon Road Improvement Scheme, Huntingdon

About this event

The A14 trunk road provides a vital road transport corridor between the West Midlands and East Anglia and is of local, regional, national and international significance.

The section of the route to be improved between Cambridge and Huntingdon carries a high level of commuter as well as long-distance traffic and also provides a strategic link between the A1 and the M11 motorway. It carries around 85,000 vehicles per day; it is frequently congested and traffic is often disrupted by breakdowns, accidents and roadwork.

The £1.5 billion project is being delivered for Highways England by the A14 Integrated Delivery Team (IDT). The IDT is made up from a three-way construction joint venture between Costain, Skanska & Balfour Beatty, along with a two-way design joint venture between Atkins and CH2M.

The early enabling works for the scheme started in mid-2016 and construction on all five main geographical sections of the project is now well underway, with contractual A14 road opening being the end of 2020.

The site visit will consist talks by the project team and temporary works team followed by a trip to site to see the progress made on the 750m long, river Ouse viaduct during the installation of the main deck units accompanied by, followed by a look at the innovative aggregate washing facility and on-site concrete batching plant.

For the visit you are required to bring your own Steel Toe Cap protective boots with ankle support. (Rigger boots are not allowed)

Minimum PPE requirements for the visit include; Yellow long sleeve Hi-vis top and Hi-Vis trousers, gloves, glasses and hardhat. These can be provided by the project, but if you could kindly contact the event organiser, Andy Bills to confirm any PPE requirements it would be much appreciated.
