Broken down vehicle adds to Huntingdon travel misery with further delays on A14 and A141 as 30,000 head for Secret Garden Party

15:23 24 July 2014




Traffic is building up around Huntingdon as tens of thousands of revellers head for the Secret Garden Party.

More than 30,000 people, of staff, party-goers and artists, are expected at the Abbots Ripton festival, which starts today.

The A14 from Brampton Hut and the A141 between Spittals and Sawtry Way are extremely busy with motorists heading for the Secret Garden Party. Delays are also building between Kings Ripton and Abbots Ripton on the B1090.

Huntingdon’s ring road is also busy, as is the railway station which has people queueing for taxis and buses to the site.

A broken down vehicle on the A141 is partially blocking the road, causing further delays.
