A 10 week consultation has been launched on plans for the £1.5 billion A14 Cambridge to Huntingdon improvement scheme. After plans for toll road were dropped last September , the changes include improvements to Brampton, Swavesey, Bar Hill and Girton junctions. An updated local access road has also been proposed between Fen Drayton and Swavesey.

Roads minister Robert Goodwill said: “The redevelopment of the £1.5 billion A14 scheme is vital to the economic development of the region, helping to support and unlock growth across the East of England. The new consultation is an important next step in the development process, not only for local businesses, but for residents and motorists who are subject to delays and reliability issues on a daily basis.

The Highways Agency has organised more than 30 events across Cambs with details available on its website. The agency will announce the preferred route in the summer and subject to planning, work is due to start on site in late 2016.
