About this event

Please note: this event is now fully booked. Please contact Heather Bell at: heather.bell@ice.org.uk to be put on a waiting list in case of cancellations.

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 High ways 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.

The early enabling works for the scheme started in mid-2016 and construction on four of the five main geographical sections of the project is now well underway, with contractual A14 road opening being the end of 2020. A sixth package of works, to remove the viaduct which currently takes the existing A14 over the railway line at Huntingdon, will be undertaken in 2021, once the new A14 is open.

The visit will consist of a presentation from an A14 representative followed by a guided tour of the River Ouse Viaduct and Pre-cast yard.

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

Numbers are limited to 12 and online booking is essential.
