A consultation on the A14 upgrade will start on Monday (April 7).
The Highways Agency will be hosting more than 30 exhibitions along the route to give residents a look at the proposed route for the £1.5billion upgrade between Ellington and Cambridge during the 10-week consultation.
Changes have been made to the scheme since it was first revealed last year, which include removing the tolling element, the Brampton A1/A14 junction will have a new shape, as will some junctions along the route.
Designers have also realigned eight side roads and bridges over and under the upgraded route between the Offords and Swavesey.
Papworth will hold the first exhibition in our area next Thursday (April 10) and consultation information will be available from libraries in Huntingdon, St Ives, Buckden and St Neots.

Ian Parker, of the Highways Agency’s A14 Cambridge to Huntingdon project team, said: “We’re pleased to announce the dates for the A14 improvement scheme consultation and to let people know how to get involved.
“We realise that not everyone with an interest in the A14 project will be able to attend an exhibition, but that doesn’t mean they can’t join in. All the information, including a copy of what you’ll see at the exhibitions, will be online from 7 April. We hope that the public, businesses and others with an interest in the scheme will put aside the time to find out more about the project and give us feedback.”
The preferred route will be announced in the summer, ahead of planning application being submitted in the autumn.
