The Highways Agengy has started consultation on plans for one and a half billion pound improvement scheme for the A14 between Cambridge and Huntingdon

In September last year the Highways Agency held a public consultation to consider route options for the A14 scheme.

As a result of that the proposed scheme has now been developed in more detail and plans to toll the road have been dropped.

The changes that have been made in response to feedback from last year's consultation include improvements to Brampton, Swavesey, Bar Hill and Girton junctions.

An updated local access road has also been proposed between Fen Drayton and Swavesey.

The current consultation exercise forms part of the statutory planning process and is intended to give local residents, businesses, haulage operators and communities more information on the scope and details of the proposals and to have their say on the plans.
