These amazing aerial shots taken over Huntingdon this week show the new layout of the town's railway station and transport hub. 

They were taken by local photographer Geoff Soden on May 27.

The completion of Mill Common means almost a mile of new link roads have been built on the outskirts of Huntingdon helping to improve access to the town and the new transport hub around the train station.

Mill Common – the last in a series of link roads into Huntingdon town centre was opened to the public on Thursday (June 2).

This formed the final road construction part of a £1.5 billion upgrade to the A14 in Cambridgeshire and sees an end to more than five and half years of major infrastructure work.

The transport hub at the station includes a new car park for train users, access for buses and other vehicles, more footpaths, and significant tree planting.

This followed the dismantling of the old A14 viaduct which spanned the East Coast Main Line and brought increased noise and air pollution to the heart of Huntingdon.
