The A14 provides a vital road transport corridor between the North, the Midlands and the East of England, and is of local, regional, national and international significance.
The section of the route between Huntingdon and Cambridge carries a high level of commuter as well as long-distance traffic and provides a strategic link between the A1 and the M11 motorway.
The award-winning A14 Cambridge to Huntingdon improvement scheme was developed to provide much needed added capacity to:
- combat congestion
- improve safety
- unlock growth
- connect people
- leave a positive legacy
The 12 mile bypass between Huntingdon and Swavesey opened in May 2020 and the scheme was completed in June 2022, when we finished our work to improve connections in and around Huntingdon.
