Progress Continues On £1.5bn A14 Cambridge To Huntingdon Upgrade

Construction News Image
Progress is continuing on the £1.5 billion A14 Cambridge to Huntingdon improvement programme.

A temporary bridge erected over the A14 at Swavesey is to be removed this week after being used to carry 160,000 cubic metres of construction materials from the south to the north of the A14 in just over two months.

Highways England project manager for the A14 Cambridge to Huntingdon scheme, Chris Griffin, said: "Using this temporary bridge has helped us to carry out work to prepare the construction of the future Swavesey interchange with minimal impact on people's journeys, and is just one of the ways in which we are keeping traffic moving while we deliver these vital improvements for the A14.

"The bridge will be taken down using temporary overnight closures on the A14, so I encourage drivers to plan ahead and find out what to do if they are affected."

To carry out the bridge removal safely, the the A14 will need to be closed between junctions 24 (Godmanchester) and 31 (Girton interchange) from 9pm to 5am as follows;

• A14 eastbound closure only on Monday 20 November

• A14 westbound closure only on Tuesday 21 November

• Full A14 closure in both directions on Saturday 25 November

Diversions will be in place.
