The huge viaduct demolition project faced several delays due to some technical difficulties with this huge structure, but has now finally been completed.

According to National Highways, the A14 upgrade has employed more than 14,000 people in total, with up to 2,500 working on site during the project’s peak.

Building the new road took 14 million construction hours – the equivalent of almost 1,600 years.
