About this event

The existing A14 trunk between Cambridge and Huntingdon is well known for congestion and delays. This section of the route 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. For these reasons, a major improvement scheme is currently being constructed.

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 four-way construction joint venture between Costain, Skanska, Balfour Beatty and Carillion, along with a two-way design joint venture between Atkins and CH2M.

Construction of the project is well under way, with the new A14 planned to open towards the end of 2020. Removal of the existing A14 viaduct over the railway line at Huntingdon will be undertaken once the new A14 is open.

The visit will consist of a presentation from an A14 representative followed by a guided tour of a section of the A14 site.

Attendees will need to bring their own PPE consisting of high vis jacket, high vis trousers, hard hat, safety boots, gloves and eye protection.

Numbers will be strictly limited and online booking is essential. The visit will take place in the afternoon, lasting approximately 3 hours, and will start from one of the A14 construction compounds. Places will be allocated on a "first-come" basis and details will be confirmed nearer the time to those who have registered.
