A14 Cambridge to Huntingdon
Early preparatory construction work on the A14 Cambridge to Huntingdon scheme has been under way for a number of months, and construction of the new road has started.
Highways England is currently carrying out a variety of tasks for which it will need to close lanes or carriageway on the A1, A14 and some local roads, usually overnight between 8pm and 6am, unless otherwise stated. A clearly signed diversion route will always be in place for closures.
The work includes:
Creating safe crossing points for plant on a number of local roads;
Installing access points to our construction compounds;
Taking core samples of the existing A1 and A14 carriageways to help us plan construction;
Clearing sites next to the live carriageway of vegetation;
Installing CCTV and average speed cameras;
Installing information boards.
